Design/build team selected for Gibsons Elementary

The Sunshine Coast Board of Education has accepted the recommendation of the SD46 Evaluation Team for Bouygues Building Canada Ltd. & KMBR Architects to be the preferred design build team for the new Gibsons Elementary School.

The Evaluation Team, comprised of Patrick Bocking (Superintendent), Nicholas Weswick (Secretary-Treasurer), Rob Collision (Manager of Facilities), Deborah Luporini (Principal, Gibsons Elementary School), Jim Alkins (Project Director) and Patrick May (Architectural Advisor) provided their recommendation to the Board of Education at its meeting on Tuesday, February 12.

Patrick Bocking commented, “We are excited to be moving forward to provide an excellent learning environment for our students in the Gibsons community!”
The next steps will be to meet with staff, students and parents to share the plans and hear further feedback. The SD46 Evaluation Team anticipates bringing a report to the Board of Education at the March meeting. It is anticipated that the new Gibsons Elementary School will be open in the Fall of 2014.
Board Chair Silas White added, “The community has been waiting a long time for this. We are thrilled to have found an incredible team, that has been extremely responsive to staff, parent and community input, to begin construction for us later this Spring.”
