Senior School Construction Update - April 2023

Have you walked, cycled, or driven past the corner of 29th and Camosun lately? If you have, you can’t help but be awestruck by the progress of the new St. George’s Senior School campus construction. The three buildings emerging around the central quad, nested against the majestic trees of Pacific Spirit Park, appear to be perfectly situated and designed to reframe the future of St. George’s School.     

The mass timber structure and cross-laminated timber roof over the dining/gathering hall are now complete. This remarkable space is taking shape and will soon provide an inspiring venue to host future gatherings such as School Opening, Remembrance Day, Guest Speakers, and Graduation. Moreover, our students will live, learn, and dine in this beautiful space every day. The new and modern kitchen will enhance the food service offerings, fueling growing bodies and minds. 

Work on exterior cladding and glazing in both academic buildings is underway. As you drive by the new campus, you'll notice the massive expanses of floor to ceiling windows that will bathe our teachers and students in natural light and illuminate their minds. 

Mechanical and electrical work is progressing in all three buildings, and while this will be invisible to most eyes, it will literally power our work for decades to come. 

Steel stud work in the west building is now complete and is 90% complete in the east building. Drywall is 90% complete in the west building. Those who have had the opportunity to tour the site have commented on how the new learning areas are spacious and clean. They are truly inspired by the possibilities these designs offer our teachers and students. 

We are on track to complete construction by the end of 2023 and are deep into the process of our transition plans.  

For more information or to consider ways you might add your support to this transformative moment in the history of the School, please reach out to the Advancement Team. We could not be more proud of the collective efforts of this remarkable community. Here’s to all that lies ahead!
