As the structural consultant, we were assigned the task of not only designing the new structure but to work with the demolition contractor to remove the existing school. With its target of L.E.E.D. platinum, our office was careful in ensuring our work would properly reflect the goal and true meaning behind this school as being environmentally mindful.

Special structural considerations for this building were required to meet the various requirements of the project, including but not limited to:

  1. Large clearstories to allow for natural light.
  2. Roof top rainwater storage.
  3. Solar array support structure along the roof and face of the building.
  4. Support of a vertical axis wind turbine on the roof.
  5. Design of an exterior living classroom.
  6. Design of solar array tree structure located at the front entry way.

Our office was honoured to be a part of this great project. We know that given the devoted efforts of so many individuals and companies, this school will stand for many years to come as a symbol for what is possible when balancing the need for new with the needs of our environment.
