Maddaugh Road Elementary School
This new elementary school is located at 78th avenue near 192nd Street Surrey, B.C. The 525 Gr. 1 – 7 + 80 K student nominal capacity for this school addresses existing and future accommodation projections. The school was also approved with a 15% area allowance for a Neighborhood Learning Centre.
This project is significantly influenced by Mar Jok Elementary School located in West Kelowna, B.C., modified for the increased proposed capacity, and Surrey School District design priorities for educational delivery and the funded Neighbourhood Learning Centre (NLC). The project is designed to achieve B. C. Government policy priorities including LEED® NC 2004 Gold equivalent standards and to maximize the use of wood in accordance with the Wood First Act.
Community use spaces are generally located in a separate after-hours use zone, including the gymnasium and stage, multi-purpose room, change rooms, gathering space, and kitchen servery. The NLC area allowance has been expended to provide enhanced gymnasium facilities, a school gathering space, and two additional classrooms – one grouped with the kindergartens for possible use for a Strong Start or similar program, and another located in a lower floor Learning Community.
