École Hammond Bay Elementary School

École Hammond Bay Elementary has undergone a transformative two-story addition, featuring a new link and front entrance. This expansion increases the school’s capacity and introduces new spaces tailored for enriched learning experiences, while also revitalizing the building.

The project encompasses 11 classrooms, equipped with breakout learning areas. Additionally, a kindergarten room is centered around an outdoor learning courtyard, fostering immersive educational experiences. A versatile multi-purpose room, intended for music activities, further enhances the school’s amenities.

Complementing the new facilities is a freshly paved parking lot, complete with a designated drop-off/pick-up lane, enhancing accessibility to the entrance and improving traffic flow. Central to the project’s ethos is a dedication to creating an environment that prioritizes the needs and experiences of students, staff, and all users. This commitment underscores the project’s overall goal to provide a conducive and inclusive space for learning and collaboration.
