School District 72 (Campbell River) Projects

Robron Centre, Campbell River, BC - 2008

Client:
Building type: , ,

Since 2004 when it was closed as a middle school, Robron Centre has evolved as a multi-tenant centre with an education focus. With the general objective of increasing utilization, school district officials applied for the centre to be part of the School Community Connections Program. Since this program was developed to encourage partnerships between schools and local governments, the City of Campbell River became an important participant in determining the best future uses for the centre. After considering a range of possibilities, we chose the promotion of lifelong learning as the central theme for the centre. Based on an analysis of the opportunities and constraints presented by the existing building, and the needs of the existing occupants, we developed a redevelopment concept for the centre. We also developed a business case whereby increased rental revenues would pay for renovation costs. Completed in 2008.

North Island College and School District 72 built a joint facility in Campbell River. Timberline Secondary School serves approximately 1,000 students in Grades 10 to 12.

Campbellton Elementary School is an older building located near the proposed route for highway realignment. We assessed the effect of the new highway and determined measures to mitigate anticipated impacts. Secondly, we reviewed the nature and scope of upgrading required to the existing facilities, in order to meet program, safety and asset management objectives. We forecasted the enrolment for an area, which included Campbellton and two other adjacent schools. We compared the benefits and costs of redevelopment versus new construction on an alternate site owned by the School District. Completed in 1995.
