Pomerleau constructed this three-storey, 18,500-m² building with its unique exterior architecture featuring rounded walls and roof.

The building includes:

  • 40 teaching classroom spaces;
  • A library;
  • A cafeteria with a green roof;
  • Administration and student services;
  • Science laboratories;
  • An 850-seat auditorium;
  • A fully-accessible activity studio with hardwood floor for dance, yoga, fitness, tai chi, martial arts and pilates;
  • A large Athletic Community Centre that has wheelchair access;
  • A multi-purpose room of approximately 84 m² with a wood floor; and
  • A gymnasium of approximately 795 m² with a wood floor.

Building construction is steel frame and suspended concrete slabs with a masonry veneer and steel stud back-up system. Metal siding and curtain walls are also featured. Windows and exterior entry doors are typically aluminium frame and the roof is covered in a thermoplastic.

Designed to achieve the LEED® Silver rating, the building has an in-floor heating system that uses steam from the Queen Elizabeth Health Sciences Centre, a kilometre away. The piping runs underneath two major roadways. The school cafeteria has a green roof; there are waterless urinals in the men's washrooms; rainwater collected from the roof is used to supply toilets with water; and the area is landscaped with indigenous plants.

In addition, there are sprinkler, elevator, electrical distribution, structured cabling, closed circuit television security and fire alarm systems.
