Capitol Hill Elementary Seismic Upgrade
LOCATION: Burnaby, BC
VALUE: $4.4 Million
This project was a phased seismic upgrade and renovation of an elementary school complex comprised of buildings dating from 1924, 1951, 1954 and 1969, with wood and concrete construction. The school was oversized for projected enrolment, so part of the program included the demolition of the north block and the construction of a new exit stair and entrance canopy in its place. A boiler replacement and gymnasium upgrade were also part of the work. The phasing of work permitted continuous occupation during construction.
