LANGFORD – Yellowridge Construction Ltd. will build the new Belmont Secondary at the Glen Lake site. Following careful evaluation, the SD62 Board of Education approved the decision Tuesday evening to award the design/build team as the preferred proponent.
“This is a huge leap forward to getting these schools built- a testament of our hard work,” says Board Chair, Wendy Hobbs. “Now we can focus on the design, look and functionality of the new Belmont, and as with the process so far, we will be asking for feedback from staff, students, parents and other partners.”
Yellowridge Construction Ltd. recently completed Alberni District Secondary School, Vancouver Island College, Rosedale Middle School in Chilliwack and a variety of other elementary schools throughout BC. They have engaged with design team, Graham Hoffart Mathiasen Architects who have a long history of successfully designing schools in the province.
Earlier this month Yellowridge Construction Ltd., along with two other design/build teams, submitted their proposals for the construction and design of the new Belmont at the Glen Lake location. Construction of the new Belmont Secondary is expected to begin this summer. The school will be ready to open its doors for September 2015.
