The $23.4 million construction contract for the new 605-seat Maddaugh Road Elementary school at 19405 76 Ave. has been awarded to Pro-Can Construction Group Corp. The project budget reflects increased funding provided by the Ministry of Education and the Surrey School District because of changing market conditions.
Maddaugh Road Elementary will help alleviate overcapacity at schools in the North Clayton area when occupied in 2021.
Preparatory construction work on the new school project is underway – within weeks of work beginning on a 12-classroom addition to Pacific Heights Elementary in South Surrey. Both projects are the result of the work and commitment of the Capital Project Office partners, including district, ministry and City of Surrey representatives, to expedite flexible and collaborative spaces needed to support today's learners.
"I'm very excited for 2019 as there will be shovels in the ground for many projects building new school spaces throughout the Surrey School District," says Surrey Board of Education chairperson Laurie Larsen. "I expect we will see construction underway this year that will add close to 5,000 additional seats for students and that is fantastic news."
"With this important step now complete, hundreds of Surrey children are one step closer to walking through the doors of a brand new Maddaugh Road Elementary School," said Minister of Education Rob Fleming. "This is a great example of our partnership with the Surrey School District, and our continued work to give all students the best educational experience possible."
