Valour School in Petawawa

Project Value:$29 Million


ZW provided full Project Management services for the design and construction for this school, and assisted the Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB) in achieving their design-to-budget goal. ZW also assisted in the planning, along with the estimating for demolition, of the three existing schools that the Valour School replaced.

The new Valour School in Petawawa will house 1,400 students ranging from JK to grade 12. This school opened their doors in the beginning of January 2015. The school is 126,000 sq. ft. and the school design includes provision for elementary classrooms, secondary classrooms, special education (elementary and secondary), science, visual arts, health sciences, and drama classrooms, a double gym, technical shops, an administration area with principal’s office and two vice-principal offices, Guidance, and Co-op offices, a fenced-off playground for Kindergarten students, and two outdoor classrooms. The facility is energy-efficient, with full wireless connectivity and capacity for SMART boards in all of the classrooms.
