Cremona School

The Third Academy

Red Deer, Alberta

The Cremona School is a multi-age facility (K-12) that includes a two-storey high school wing which required a major renovation. Work included complete upgrades of the mechanical and electrical systems and washroom facilities. “New” areas created within the existing walls included:

  • Unique community connections lab
  • Cosmetology classroom
  • Weight room

The finishes were completely modernized, and barrier-free access to the second floor was added via a lift as part of a code compliance review. This project required an understanding of the challenges faced by rural schools and the complexity of a multi-age, multi-use facility. We also completed a review of the entire school including previous renovations. During the construction process, we discovered hazardous materials which required a swift coordinated effort by Berry Architecture, the contractor, and the consultants to quickly address and resolve this challenge without affecting the schedule.

The project was completed in 2009.
