Kipling School Consolidation and Modernization

This project involves a two-stage addition and renovation to expand and modernize Kipling School. The key findings from the building assessments conducted by SEPW Architecture were:

  • Operating two schools (K-3 and 4-12) is inefficient and creates safety issues
  • The existing primary building is well past its useful life and should be closed
  • The closure of the K-3 school creates a critical space shortage in the main building
  • The layout of the main building is inefficient and dated
  • All major building systems are in need of updating - electrical, plumbing, structural, ductwork, and life safety
  • Current space does not meet current accessibility requirements

 

The approved project scope will:

  • Address all building code and life-safety deficiencies and electrical systems
  • Construct a new elementary wing; demolish old K-3 School and create playing fields on the site
  • Relocate administration offices to a more central location for better supervision
  • Renovate and expand resource centre to adequately serve the entire school
  • Relocate and expand student servery/lunchroom
  • Improve overall aesthetics - flooring, paint, finishes, exterior, etc,

 

Due to cost constraints, the project will not allow for construction of a new gym or expansion of the existing gym to allow for a stage.

 

Estimated cost is $7.0M in total, with 100% of the cost to be paid by Prairie Valley School Division. We have requested and continue to work toward a provincial capital contribution.

 

There are two self-contained phases to the work:

  • Phase 1 - Code and Safety Systems, New Construction of Elementary Classrooms, Mechanical Systems, and Renovations to the east portion of the school totaling approximately $3M.
  • Phase 2 - Code and Safety Systems, Resource Centre, Science Room, Music Room, High School classrooms, main entrance, administration office, exterior finishes totaling approximately $4M.

 

We have provided and will continue to provide opportunities for student, staff, parent and community input.

Phase 1:

  • Stage 1 Plan and schematic design are complete, including several public and staff consultation sessions; detailed architectural drawings are also complete with the tender awarded to G. Hahn Construction of Fort Qu’Appelle.  Phase 1 consists of an elementary wing addition and renovation and closure of the old primary building across the street from the main building.  Phase 1 will be complete by July 2012.   
  •  

    Phase 2

    • February to December 2012.  Phase 2 work involves an addition for a student servery and common space near the gym and renovation of the high school wings; detailed planning will begin later this year.

     

    Actual timing will depend on some factors outside of our control:

    • Ministry approvals
    • Results of local input into design
    • Final design plan
    • Unanticipated events once construction begins
