École secondaire catholique Franco-Cité

École catholique Franco-Cité Addition

Location:  623 Smyth Road, Ottawa, ON


Completed: August 2003

Value:  $

École secondaire catholique Franco-Cité is located on Smyth Road, east of the Ottawa General Hospital in Ottawa, Ontario. Taplen commenced construction on April 1, 2003.

  • The school consists of a 2-storey new addition on the east side of the existing school.
  • It has a total of 8 classrooms and 2 washrooms – 4 classrooms and a washroom on each floor.
  • The construction of the addition involved substantial renovation work in the administration, gymnasium and ‘C’ wing.
  • The gymnasium was brought back to a usable recreational space by an addition to the west side of the gymnasium for the new change rooms and by making changes for the classrooms located in the gymnasium.

This project had a very tight schedule due to weather conditions and other items that surfaced, but  despite this the project was completed on time for the owners to take possession.

The completion date was August 15, 2003. Even though, we were faced with a number of changes and unforeseen items in the renovation work, we were still able to meet the completion date of the Administration and ‘C’ Wing by August 18, 2003.

The new addition was handed over to the owners on August 25, 2003, with the gymnasium and change rooms handed over during the first week of September 2003.
