We’re thrilled to announce that Thinkspace is the prime consultant for the all-new South Langford Elementary School for School District No 62.
The $39.6 million school, which was unveiled last month by BC Premier John Horgan, will be home to 480 students in this fast-growing community. ⠀
Mass timber construction will create a healthy learning and work environment for students, teachers, and staff while reducing the school’s carbon footprint and supporting BC’s timber industry.
Other green building initiatives have allowed the team to reduce the building’s greenhouse gas output by 70% per year over a comparable building. The school will incorporate various community amenities, including a neighbourhood learning centre with childcare facilities. ⠀
Design is already well underway, as illustrated by the 3d site model and renderings on our Instagram feed, with construction scheduled to be complete by fall 2025. Stay tuned for more updates and progress photos as the project moves into construction!
