Project Completion
March 2011

Description
This High School belongs to the Kawartha Pineridge District School Board located in Brighton, Ontario. Over the last few years, we have completed numerous renovation and addition projects for this school board. Our mandate and goal with every school that we complete is to finish each project safely and on time. The timeline is most crucial for schools due to the schedule of classes for the new school year. School boards typically would like to start and finish work after the school year ends.

The East Northumberland Secondary School scope of work included a complete window and locker replacement for the entire school. Due to the age of the school, asbestos abatement and demolition were done so that the mechanical and electrical upgrades could also be complete.

There were also interior renovations to all of the hallways and some of the classrooms. This included new drywall and acoustical ceilings, fresh paint and flooring in some areas.
