Alpha Secondary School Seismic Upgrade and Addition

Client: School District No. 41 (Burnaby)
Location: Burnaby, BC

The Alpha Secondary School Seismic Upgrade, Demolition, & Addition will provide a safe and upgraded learning environment for students and staff. The seismic upgrade of the school ensures the safety of all staff and students in the event of an earthquake while a portion of the school which is currently unsafe will be demolished and a new wing will be added. The addition pulls the school together and helps to eliminate the disconnect between buildings. It provides an updated and modern learning environment, is safe, and acts as an attractive new entry to the school. The addition includes a school commons area where students will be able to socialize, study, and learn in a bright and open setting as well as a revamped courtyard for students and staff to enjoy.

The Alpha Secondary School Seismic Upgrade has a goal of providing a safe and upgraded learning environment for students. The project includes structurally reinforcing the existing school and replacing a portion of the building with a 2-storey addition. The addition includes 14 classrooms, 7 science classrooms and labs, 4 computer labs, administration space, and common learning areas. The project also includes an updated main entrance with a widened turn-around drop-off loop, outdoor plazas, a landscaped student courtyard, and a revised asphalt parking area.
