Alberta Schools Alternative Procurement Phase 1

Bird, in a joint venture arrangement, constructed 18 LEED Silver certified schools in Calgary and Edmonton based on a core school design that utilizes modular class room space to accommodate the ebb and flow of student capacity.

Under a tight schedule, the team undertook a substantial redesign of the core schools - maximizing constructability, decreasing cost and improving the construction schedule. Throughout the design, the team used life cycle costing to ensure value for money and longevity of the products used. Load bearing masonry was replaced with structural steel and infill block and the foundation work was substantially decreased by the use of piles and grade beams.
