New schools’ open house on April 15

School District 19 will hold an open house on April 15 at which it will unveil the plans for Revelstoke’s new elementary and high schools.

“School District #19 representatives and the Design-Build team will be available to answer questions about the design and construction of the new elementary and secondary schools that will be constructed on the RSS site,” said a statement released Thursday by the Board of Trustees.

In January, the board authorized staff to negotiate with Graham Design Builders, a JV, the preferred proponent identified through the Request for Proposals process.  The School District has now issued a Letter of Intent to enter into a contract with Graham Design Builders, a JV and the parties expect to be able to sign a contract in the near future.

The open house will be held April 15 from 5:30 until 8 pm  at Revelstoke Secondary School.  Highlights will include: the elementary and secondary school plans; information on the Neighbourhoods of Learning spaces, including the early learning hub, gymnastics facility and theatre; site plans and construction timelines.
