Owner: Scolaire Des Écoles Catholique du Sud-Ouest
Location: Owen Sound, Ontario
Size: 36,000 sf
This project was completed through a collaborative effort between JPT and its associated company JPT Management, serving as Prime Consultant and Construction Manager respectively. JPT designed this 36,000 sf elementary school. Highlights of the school include a 4,000 sf gymnasium and combined auditorium which is also open to community functions and gatherings. Additionally, a daycare, science lab, computer lab, library and resource centre provide the school with necessary resources.
During the construction phase JPT Management was able to complete the project two weeks ahead of schedule with time for the teachers and staff to prepare their classrooms and work areas prior to full occupancy. This impressive feat hinged not only on the expertise and knowledge of the professionals at JPT Management but also the critical partnership with the prime consultant, JPT. With both the construction manager and prime consultant under one roof, the project was handled collaboratively through every stage of the project. This resulted in quick and fair decisions, well strategized phasing, and a high quality of construction that was delivered on time and on budget. In addition, the team of JPT Management and JP Thomson Architects assembled a local work force for the construction phase of the project. Exclusively local suppliers and dealers were also sourced for all materials and finishes.
