COLWOOD – Planning is underway and action will be starting at Royal Bay for a 600-seat expansion. Led by Knappett Projects Inc., the expansion is set to open September, 2020.
“We’ve been hoping for this expansion since the school opened and we’re happy the government approved funding so quickly for this project,” says Ravi Parmar, SD62 Board Chair. “We continue to work closely with the provincial and local governments to add additional learning spaces to our fast-growing school district.”
“It is great to see this expansion moving forward so more Royal Bay students will soon be learning in positive, healthy spaces – not in portables,” said Minister of Education Rob Fleming. “We got to work quickly with the Sooke School District to support Royal Bay and other projects in the fast-growing community and we’ll continue working together to improve schools for students.”
Late last year Knappett, along with one other construction team, submitted their proposals for the expansion. Construction is expected to take place from January, 2019 to July, 2020.
