Value Scoping Project will Determine if St. Andrew’s School Building will be Renewed or Replaced

  Posted: March 9, 2023

(March 9, 2023) Following a request-for-proposals process, The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is excited to announce that it has chosen a firm to conduct a value scoping of St. Andrew’s School in High Prairie. At its meeting on February 15, the Board of Trustees accepted a proposal from Group2 Architecture Interior Design Ltd. Three companies submitted bids.

“St. Andrew’s School has been our number one capital project for a number of years,” says Superintendent Betty Turpin. “This value scoping project will inform the Board on whether to modernize or replace the St. Andrew’s School building.”

The Value Scoping Sessions will facilitate a consultative process with stakeholders that will include analysis of functional needs, programming development of facility options as well as financial implications.

The process starts on March 13 with a review of background information and will conclude on May 17, which is the due date for the final report.

“I want to thank the Alberta Government for supporting St. Andrew’s School in its endeavor to provide a 21st century learning environment for students in High Prairie and surrounding communities,” says Ward One Trustee, Leanne Cox. “Our students and staff deserve the most modern facilities. I look forward to the upcoming workshops as we move towards submitting our division’s final report to the Government.”

We will provide more information as it becomes available.
