Montecito Elementary School
Client: School District No. 41 (Burnaby)
Location: Burnaby, BC
This Montecito Elementary School Seismic Upgrade & Addition seeks to address the current concerns of the existing elementary school. With an addition being added to the north end of the school the district will be able to move students into the school from the existing exterior portables. The project will receive a seismic upgrade to reinforce the existing concrete masonry walls that are predominant through the existing building. Some minor interior work seeks to address existing accessibility and fire suppression issues while upgrading the overall exterior façade will bring freshness to the aging exterior materials. A new library within the school will be a key feature in promoting diversity within the teaching environment and providing a brand new gathering place for the students to visit.
