Bringing an old school back to life – École Confédération
At Abcott Construction we are about more than building; it is all about enhancing the lives of those who utilize our services. It is about making a difference to the communities in which we live, and offering opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to grow. It’s with great pride we can announce the completion of our latest educational facility - École Confédération.
École Confédération, formerly École Fairview is now located on 54 Ewing Drive, Brantford, ON. Redeveloping the site of the Old Coronation School for the Grand Erie District School Board, École Confédération will offer 600 students the access to activities, clubs and the ability to learn. As a French immersion school, students will have the added benefit of developing bilingual skills which dramatically opens a wide range of employment options.
Designed by +VG, Ventin Group Architects, this project involved an extensive renovation and repurposing of the existing building. The entire site required reworking to accommodate the expansion of 8 brand new classrooms, a gymnasium, washrooms, a library, parking facilities and a more efficient bus route for ease of access and safety. The scope also included relocation of a 4 classroom Port-a-Pac from the school’s previous location.
The project was completed on schedule for the 2016 school year and is currently moulding the minds of our future generations. Students and parents alike are thrilled with their new school, and here at Abcott we are proud to have delivered this project in our home town of Brantford, Ontario.
