Bayview Elementary School Seismic Replacement

Vancouver, BC


Bayview Elementary School is two story school with the lower level housing administration offices, classrooms, two multi-purpose rooms and a large gymnasium. The upper level will house the library and additional classrooms. The CLT system serves double duty as both gravity and shear walls to resist the high seismic forces of the region. The gymnasium and multipurpose spaces in the lower level are comprised of a composite double-T design, combining CLT with glulam beams to form 16 meter long spanning panels. This project will include two elements from the original structure; an arched window dating back to 1913 and a set of vestibule doors from 1929.

The new structure will deliever a net CO2 benefit of 1,137 metric tons.
