Port Clements Elementary School, Port Clements, BC - 2006
Client: School District 50 (Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte)
Building type: K-12 Education
Port Clements Elementary School is in a small isolated community. Current enrolment at the school is just over 50 students. Enrolment is expected to be at a similar level for the foreseeable future. The school requires considerable renovation, including seismic and mechanical upgrading. The Village of Port Clements is planning to construct a new Multi-Purpose Building using a design-build process. The Village and School District 50 have had preliminary discussions where the idea of building a replacement school as part of the new Multi-Purpose Building was addressed. We explored the concept of attaching a replacement for the Port Clements Elementary School to the proposed new Port Clements Multi-Purpose Building. Completed in 2006.
