Ecole de Quatre-Vents Replacement School is an ambitious project that aims to advance education in Peace River. This K-12 replacement school exemplifies the seamless integration of innovative structural engineering and architectural excellence.
The school encompasses an approximate area of 3,100 square meters, featuring a single-story structure constructed with a combination of structural steel, glulam, and masonry. Noteworthy design challenges, such as supporting masonry walls from a structural slab on grade, were met with ingenious engineering solutions. The project’s distinctive features include sophisticated canopy framing, seamless integration between the masonry gym walls and surrounding structural steel framing, and the use of both structural steel and feature glulam framing in the library and circulation areas.
Scheduled for completion in September 2023, the Ecole de Quatre-Vents Replacement School reflects our commitment to delivering exceptional structural engineering solutions. This transformative educational facility will empower students, foster community development, and establish new benchmarks for sustainable and forward-thinking design in Peace River.
