Built in 1927, Calder School is one of the oldest in Edmonton. Indeed, the original Calder School was built before it was even a part of the city! Since the 1970s, the school has undergone only minor renovations, with the result being failing mechanical systems and building envelope, and an outdated and uncomfortable interior.
Our modernization of Calder School retains the building’s historical character while refreshing the interior environment and bringing it up to 21st Century Learning standards. Our consultation process involved the entire community, both within the school and its surrounding area, and included students, teachers, staff and Calder community members.
LIVELY AND DYNAMIC
The modernization project included an upgrade to the School’s interior image, replacement of mechanical and electrical systems, redesign of the front entrance and library, renovations to the learning resource centre and upgrades to the building envelope. Construction was phased to allow on-going operation of the school. The reimagined Calder School provides a lively, dynamic, and supportive environment for students now and into the future.
