Capacity for Handsworth Secondary School, North Vancouver - 2014

Building type:

We established the appropriate capacity for an urban secondary school based on anticipated future enrolment and the status of adjacent secondary schools. Our work became part of a Project Definition Report for the proposed replacement or redevelopment of the school. We concluded that the school be built with an initial capacity for 1,300 students. In addition, we recommended that the design of the school show how the facility could be easily expanded by up to 200 additional spaces, and that the strategy for allowing future expansion could include building the core functions for a 1,500-space school. Completed in 2014.
