The COLBORNE ARCHITECTURAL GROUP Pacific was retained to design an addition to
Captain James Cook Elementary School in the south-eastern area of Vancouver. Eight
new regular classrooms and a special education classroom were added to replace a
number of portables on the site. The existing gymnasium was also enlarged to
accommodate an increased school capacity of 500 elementary plus 40 kindergarten
students. A new entrance at the juncture of the two provides access from parking and
the west yard playground. The entrance path leads to a new gate from a proposed
housing development on adjacent lands.
