Laura Secord School Gymnasium Addition

This addition and renovation project to the existing Laura Secord School provides a new gymnasium, associated support facilities and a fully equipped grooming room to this Wolseley community landmark. With an existing centralized courtyard and associated site parameters, the addition’s location, configuration and tie-in required careful consideration. To maintain proper site access and school yard sight lines, the building ‘link’ is proposed at the second level of the school, connected directly into the primary classroom corridor within the core of the school. Further to being carefully sited, designed and detailed, the expansion provides a new “front door” to the school, and act as a gateway to the school playgrounds within. Completed in 2017, the project achieved LEED Gold designation, surpassing the Provincial mandate for sustainability of government supported capital projects.
