The Avon Maitland District School Board began the process of developing a new school in the Township of North Huron in 2009. Through the accommodation review process, the closure of several schools surrounding the Town of Wingham for the creation of a centralized, state of the art education facility was determined. A 7 ha property on the easterly limits of the town of Wingham was selected adjacent to the existing F.E. Madill Secondary School.
The development of the site required an extension of John Street to provide access to the new building and for site servicing. Sanitary sewer, watermain and storm sewer services were designed for the property and connected to the existing Municipal systems. Stormwater management for the site was required to mitigate peak post development flows entering the existing storm sewer infrastructure. A grey water system was designed using roof water collected in an external cistern.
The site required full earthworks calculations to balance the materials on-site as well as grading and drainage design. A new parking lot was constructed to accommodate bus, vehicular and pedestrian traffic. As part of a staging process for the secondary school, a new student parking lot was constructed off Carling Terrace for F.E. Madill. A new asphalt playground was constructed to accommodate the Grade 7 and 8 students who were moved to the secondary school.
Engineering projects of all shapes and sizes.
