With such an extensive modernisation of the school desired, this project will be completed in phases over 36 months. The schedule and execution of this project must be carefully planned to ensure the safety and convenience of the students and staff of Ross Sheppard High School. Adding to the challenge of renovating in an occupied space, the entire school is receiving complete asbestos and lead abatement in the respective phases. We will be performing a complete electrical and mechanical systems upgrade along with a multitude of interior and exterior renovations to the building. We will be transforming classrooms and auxiliary spaces as well as constructing a new gymnasium addition. One of the programs unique to Ross Sheppard is their extensive band program. Showcased in the school is a state of the art music room, mandarin drums room and auxiliary practice rooms, complete with the extensive acoustic treatments required. Last but not least, the entire parking areas and landscaping will be revised and expanded, to supply the parking needs of the 2200 students and staff.
