The architects who are working on the new Quesnel Junior School (QJS) continue to move forward and are working on schematic designs, trustees heard this week.
Project manager Scott Thompson and QJS principal Suzanne Bolin were to do a Skype meeting Jan. 15, and then they will meet with the architects from CHP and Ministry of Education representatives to do a final walk-through of the schematic designs, secretary-treasurer Jennifer Woollends explained in her update at the Jan. 15 school board meeting.
“The school project is proceeding really well,” said Woollends, noting the team is finalizing the schematic design. “Next week will be exciting. We have CHP, the architects, here, as well as the subcontractors, to start talking about the next phase, as well as we will get into costing sometime soon.”
The CHP architects and subcontractors will be in Quesnel Jan. 22 and 23 for detailed meetings around components and subsystems.
As for the demolition of the old QJS site on Callahan Street, Woollends told the board everything is proceeding on track.
