Dunsmuir Middle School, Seismic Upgrade, Colwood
Client: School District 62 (Sooke)
Prime Consultant: Herold Engineering Limited
Location: Colwood, BC
Completion: September 2016 [4 months ahead of schedule]
This project was a major seismic upgrading of Dunsmuir Middle School; primarily a two-storey concrete block building with several classroom additions. The existing school was in operation at full capacity during construction and Kinetic provided a safe, secure school environment for all students, staff and the general public during all construction activities.
Through team work and commitment to an aggressive project schedule, Kinetic completed the project under budget and approximately four months ahead of schedule. In addition to the seismic upgrade, we also built classroom additions, performed mechanical and civil code upgrades and performed other minor seismic upgrades throughout the school.
While working on Dunsmuir, we also setup 13 portable classrooms with washroom facilities and an outdoor corridor space to temporarily accommodate almost 400 students and provide a safe and secure school environment for all students and staff during all construction activities.
