RJC was engaged by the Central Okanagan School District No.

23 for building enclosure and roofing consulting services for this new 88,792 sq. ft. school in Kelowna.

The $38.1M school features 21st Century learning and was constructed within a quick 16 month timeframe.

Canyon Falls Middle School accommodates 750 grade six to eight students and helps address the over-crowding of educational facilities happening in the Okanagan/Mission region.

It was crucial that the new school layout had flexibility in the spaces which resulted in the creation of a series of interdisplinary learning “pods” where groups of classrooms open into a large, collaborative maker space.The exterior appearance of the school is defined with aluminum composite panels, a bold green accent colour, copper toned glazing frames and ground-level masonry.

Subtle nods to the poles that uphold grapevines through the Okanagan were incorporated through angled columns for the roof overhangs.
