Yellowridge Construction to start building Belmont this summer

Sooke School District awards contract to design/build new secondary school near Glen Lake

Yellowridge Construction will build the new Belmont secondary school near Glen Lake.

The Sooke School District awarding the design and build last night.

“This is a huge leap forward to getting these schools built- a testament of our hard work,” said board chair Wendy Hobbs. “Now we can focus on the design, look and functionality of the new Belmont, and as with the process so far, we will be asking for feedback from staff, students, parents and other partners.”

Yellowridge recently completed Alberni District Secondary School, Vancouver Island College, Rosedale Middle School in Chilliwack and a variety of other elementary schools throughout the province.

The company has engaged the design team Graham Hoffart Mathiasen Architects.

Construction is expected to begin this summer for the school to open its doors in September 2015.

The final build/design team for the new school at the Royal Bay location is scheduled to be chosen in late June, with construction anticipated to begin late this summer.
