Sherwood Park, Alberta
Elk Island Catholic Separate Regional School District
École Pere Kenneth Kearns is the only Catholic Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 4 French Immersion School in Sherwood Park. Originally built in 1967, this project included modernization of six existing classrooms and the renovation of existing spaces into five new classroom and music room spaces. A new library, breakout spaces and washrooms were also created as part of the school renovations.
An addition to the west side of the building included a university-size gymnasium, change area and reception space; all to be shared between the school and the County of Strathcona. A new parking lot was also added and various other site work updates completed to accommodate the school as well as patrons using the new gym facilities.
JEN COL was involved very early on in the planning process for the EPKK school addition and modernization project and were able to budget and plan the project successfully with the clients, consultants and subcontractors.
