The 350 capacity and expandable K-9 core school was developed in conjunction with a team of educators, architects and community members. All spaces were designed with flexibility in mind. It was designed following the principles of an adaptable environment, interactive space for engagement and contemporary architectural expression. The tender phase of the school was subject to unexpected cost escalation in 2004 and had to be re-designed and re-tendered. Value engineering was implemented with productive negotiations with the M.D. Foothills in order to bring the construction costs to within AI support levels.
