Clear Water Academy Replacement

Calgary, Alberta

Project Description

Clear Water Academy is a private Catholic School in Calgary Alberta. With attendance on the rise, Clark Builders was brought in to demolish an older section of the school and replace it with a new, three-storey extension. The new addition to the school allows it to accommodate increased enrollment, while modernizing the campus. 

The extension features an elegant rotunda entrance, with a library located above. A unique design was used in the chapel, making it a highlight of the building. The cross is a window made of coloured glass enclosed in a wall of decorative tile and flanked on either side with more coloured glass. When the sun is shining, the cross appears to glow, and the chapel is flooded with light, creating an inspiring space for worship. The school also took the needs of its families into consideration, and added rooms that accommodate before and after school care.

Working on a site attached to a functioning school in a busy section of Calgary meant that the area around the site was very busy, especially with student drop-off and pick-up happening nearby. We took measures to ensure the safety of students, guardians, and staff while endeavoring not to obstruct the daily activities within the school.
