School District 44 (North Vancouver) Projects

Project Identification, Seymour Heights Elementary School, North Vancouver - 2013

Client:
Building type:

Seymour Heights is one of three elementary schools where graduating students attend Windsor Secondary School. Once Seymour Heights is replaced or expanded, the school district intends to close one of the other schools. After estimating future enrolment and examining the other schools in the study area, we determined that Seymour Heights should have 26 classrooms. We estimated the cost and other aspects of three physical development options, and concluded that the best approach was to replace the school in its current location on the site. Completed in 2013.

We prepared an update to a long-term comprehensive district-wide facilities plan for the North Vancouver School District. Our initial task was to update the enrolment forecast for each school as well as the district as a whole. We accomplished this by incorporating anticipated new housing developments as outlined by local government planners. We also updated our facilities and properties database for all the schools in the district. We reviewed current plans and formulated new plans with senior school district administrators in light of new enrolment and facilities data. Completed in 2007.
