The new Chilliwack Secondary School design-build project, led by Graham Construction, accommodates 1,200 grade 10 to 12 students. The building reflects the heritage of the Stó:lō Nation and local surroundings. The school’s design embraces elements and materials that reflect the community’s culture and exemplifies the use of wood and sustainable principles. As a member of the design build team, RJC’s Building Envelope group contributed to the design with high-quality building envelope details worked into the architecture and the construction process. Key building envelope components were designed for high energy-efficiency using airtight and well-insulated wall, window and roof systems, and realizing the architectural vision while maintaining technical rigour in the design.
