Project Stats

Type: New Build
Status: In-progress
Client: School District No. 36, Surrey
Location: Surrey, BC
Size: 13,685 m2
Project Delivery: Design-Bid-Build

The new school will support 1,500 students and features 10 Learning Communities consisting of various sized learning spaces surrounding an open wet/dry project space. These agile learning spaces incorporate the latest technologies, movable walls, writable surfaces, plenty of natural light, and support core principles such as anytime-anywhere, collaborative, project and inquiry based learning.

Re-jigging the template for school design required a fresh perspective, starting with new names for traditional spaces. Music, arts and drama become “MAD” Labs and the metal and wood shops become “TED” (Technology Engineering and Design) Labs. Learning spaces incorporate discovery labs, break-out and multi-purpose gathering spaces, and learning commons with Makerspaces.
