Priority Three: Blessed Sacrament School Drainage & Classroom Expansion - K-12 Wainwright
Blessed Sacrament School has been experiencing increased growth over the last few years. In 2016, a connecting link with two modular classrooms and a modular storage washroom was added. In 2018, an additional two modular classrooms and a modular washroom was joined to the 2016 modular addition. Within the existing building, space has been optimized and options for growth have been exhausted. In the summer of 2019 the school board, in consultation with the principal, created an additional classroom by dividing the existing CTS computer lab into two instructional spaces. It was determined that in order to accommodate additional increases in student growth over the next few years, a permanent expansion space would be required.
ECACS submitted a formal request to Alberta Education in 2019 seeking permission to access the school division’s financial surplus to fund the construction of a four classroom expansion. In September 2019, ONPA Architects and their consultant team were retained by East Central Catholic School Division (ECACS) to design and prepare tender documents for a two-story, four-classroom addition connected to the north-end of Blessed Sacrament K-12 School located in Wainwright, Alberta.
ONPA architect team proposed a 1.6 million expansion project consisting of a two-story, four-classroom addition that is to be connected to the north-end of the school. In addition to the four-classrooms it was determined that the gymnasium stage was under utilized area within the school. An operable wall with a high acoustic rating will be added to the front of the stage to partition off the space to use as a breakout room or additional program space.
