William Reid is a small 15 classroom kindergarten to Grade 4 French immersion school located in SW Calgary. The school has a strong culture of community, belonging and pride. It was these qualities that inspired Ace and RJC Building Envelope to design a new skin for the school that blended with the surrounding community and embodied natural materials. The scope of this project was to remove the entire building exterior and replace with a high performing exterior complete with new cladding, windows and doors. Our team is confident that this project will greatly enhance the teaching and learning environment once complete in the Fall of 2019.
