Maple Reinders was awarded the stipulated bid contract for the construction of a K-8 school in the community of Westbrook, in the foothills of Cochrane, Alberta, for Rocky View Schools.
The building consists of a permanent structure containing a gymnasium, administration offices, ancillary facilities and learning commons while all nine classrooms are modular units. The construction of the school took place while the existing Westbrook School (built in 1953) was in use for an entire school year. The contract included abatement and demolition of the existing school which was undertaken during the summer break.
Mass timber was used throughout the school with glulam post and beam structures used in the gymnasium, library and learning commons. The mass timber was carried through to the exterior, which complements the Western ranch feel and the nature surrounding the school site.
Maple Reinders was contracted to Design-Bid-Build a 35,000 SF curvilinear building, which included operable windows, a raised access floor with personal air control devices, flow-through air pattern circulation; as well as warm and inviting interior finishes to add to the level of human comfort for occupants.
Maple Reinders provided Construction Management services for a three phrase project - two phases of renovations, and one phase of an addition - for the Christ Church in Calgary, a thriving community of Anglican Christians.
