Ground Breaking at Brookes School
The ground breaking for the new Brookes School Academy – a school being constructed in the community of West Shore, took place on July 28th, 2017 and Kinetic is the Construction Manager for this project.
The project is construction of a new school consisting of a student accommodation building, common cafeteria/food services building, education/classroom building including school administration facility, a gymnasium as well as associated on and off site work.
The private school that is set to open next fall will follow the lead of the seven other Brookes Schools around the world, offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) middle years program for Grades 6 to 10 and the IB diploma program for Grades 11 and 12. The IB program at Brookes aims to educate the whole student by teaching critical-thinking skills, balancing academics with physical activity as well as encouraging a spirit of service to the community.
Kinetic is glad to be a part of this project that has been described by Colwood Mayor Carol Hamilton as providing diversity, economic development and a new asset to the city.
