Clark Builders Selected for George Pringle Secondary School

We are excited to announce that Clark Builders has been successfully awarded the Design Build contract for the new George Pringle Secondary School in West Kelowna, BC.

The new George Pringle Secondary School will include a neighbourhood learning centre that can offer community programming including childcare, Indigenous and other cultural services, and family resources.

The school will be built with greenhouse gas and energy reduction strategies achieved through a sustainable geo-exchange system for heating and cooling. The energy efficient design features heat recovery, building automation, and lighting control. The design also incorporates non-combustible construction materials.

"We commend the work of our staff and everyone who worked hard on this process to choose the right builder for this important project," said Kevin Kaardal, Superintendent of Schools/CEO. "We are confident that Clark Builders will deliver a 21st century learning space that will serve the West Kelowna community well for many years to come."

This project continues Clark Builders’ legacy of design build delivery with a hand-picked team of talented and dedicated consultants led by studioHuB Architects, who are experienced in exactly this type of work. Working directly for the School District 23 Central Okanagan (SD23), a team of key individuals who, from day 1, have shepherded this project to fruition and will continue to advance the design and lead the delivery of this work.

“We are excited and honoured to be selected and join with Central Okanagan Public Schools in the work ahead to deliver a modern and sustainable George Pringle Secondary School with a neighbourhood learning centre that will reflect elements of syilx culture,” said Scott Benoit, Director, Project Development for Clark Builders. “As Design Builders of educational facilities, Clark Builders and studioHuB architects recognize how design can positively impact the social and environmental landscape to improve the wellbeing and learning outcomes of students, staff, and the community.”

The new school will accommodate 1,200 students and is expected to be ready for the September 2027 school year. The estimated cost of the project is about $124 million.
