City/Town: New Westminster

Project Scope: This project is the largest school investment in British Columbia’s history, the replacement of NWSS has been a top priority for a number of years, due to the school’s poor condition and high seismic risk. The old school was built in 1949 and is one of the largest secondary schools in BC. The new school will accommodate 1900 grade 9-12 students and will be designed to meet today’s standards for safety, accessibility and modern learning. It will also be designed to accommodate enrolment growth and possible expansions.
