Hugh Boyd Secondary School Seismic Upgrade & Addition

Client: School District No. 38 (Richmond)
Location: Richmond, BC

The Hugh Boyd project involved remedying the seismic and liquefaction deficiency of blocks 2 and 3 of the existing building, and the replacement of the Tech Ed wing (block 4) of the school.

Block 2 (the classroom section) work consisted of foundation and tie beam improvements, and upgrading the roof diaphragm. Block 3 (the gym) work also focused on foundation improvements and tie beams.

Block 4 was demolished and a new exterior envelope was added to the exposed end of the building. The completely revamped Tech Ed wing has greatly enhanced the learning environment, in compliance with the new Applied Design, Skills and Technologies (ADST) guidelines of the BC Ministry of Education.
