Lindsay Collegiate Vocational Institute, Addition and Alterations

Lindsay, Ontario

After completing a two storey addition to the existing multi-purpose Secondary School in 1975, which incorporated a new library/media centre, theatre arts, computer studies and administrative offices, as well as a spacious two storey entrance foyer, Allen & Sherriff Architects developed a feasibility study for future development and improvement of this 133,000 S.F. municipal landmark facility. The study was a base for the current addition/renovation project, including new physical education facilities, classroom addition and renovations, new facility for design technology and communications, music and social sciences and creation of a new social/circulation space. The upgrade of all mechanical and electrical systems was a major contribution to largely improved IAQ (indoor air quality). Building code and accessibility aspects have been also addressed as part of this  building upgrade.
