St. Thomas Aquinas - New School Project - K-12 - Provost Overview
In 2018, East Central Catholic School Division was selected to have St. Thomas Aquinas School in Provost, Alberta, replaced with a new school. The aging electrical and heating infrastructure, deteriorating foundation, and drainage issues could only be addressed by a replacement school. The original school was designed in the 1950’s and has undergone a number of renovations over the 60+ years.
In December 2018, The Workun Garrick Partnership Architecture and Interior Design Inc. was selected by Alberta Infrastructure to provide Design and Consulting Services for a Replacement of the St. Thomas Aquinas School in Provost, Alberta for the East Central Catholic School Division. The intent is to construct a new facility that works within the guiding principles for the
project, which are, in order of importance: • Life Safety
• Building Envelope
• Program
The design of the new school provides a functional and flexible space that promotes inspired learning. The St. Thomas Aquinas Replacement School will be a Grade K-12 facility with opening day capacity set at 300 students. The School Board has received permission from Alberta Education to convert the 2 allocated modular classroom spaces, originally proposed, into permanent educational space. Additionally the School Board, in association with the community, has raised the required funding to increase the Gymnasium size from the allocated 430m. to a 600m. gymnasium. As a result the Replacement School will open with 3,393m. of total permanent space.
