Facilities Plan Update, North Vancouver School District, BC - 2013

Building type:

We prepared an update to a long-term comprehensive district-wide facilities plan for the North Vancouver School District we completed in 2007. Our revised enrolment forecasts were based on changes to the Official Community Plans for both the City of North Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver. These changes as well as demographic changes resulted in anticipated modest enrolment growth in the medium term. In addition, our revised plan incorporated recent school closures as well as the implementation of full day kindergarten and other educational programs. Our assessment of assets referenced recent province-wide building assessments and analyses of seismic risk. We also examined the potential long-term need for unused school district property to determine the advisability of property disposal. Completed in 2013.
