School contract awarded to Bouygues
The Vancouver School Board has awarded a fixed-price contract to Bouygues Building Canada to design and build the Kitsilano Secondary School Renewal project. The estimated project cost is $62.2 million, including incorporation of the latest seismic construction standards.
The 18,800 square metre, three-storey facility will include a new academic wing with specialty classrooms and program spaces, as well as a new library, three gymnasiums and a 350 seat theatre.
The main historical facade of the school, which dates back to 1927, will be preserved.
Design-build activities will get underway this fall and work will be carried out in phases on the existing site. Completion is expected by the beginning of the September 2017 school year.
