The Westlawn Schools were awarded under one IPD contract for the design and construction of one K-3 School (Aleda Patterson School) and one 4-9 School (Alex Janvier School) in the Westlawn community. The project also included the demolition of the existing Westlawn and Afton Schools.
Alex Janvier 4-9 School is located on the existing Westlawn School site and retains an existing playground. This school had an opening capacity of 650 students and was built utilizing 21st century learning and targeting LEED v4 Silver, utilizing energy efficiency and sustainability such as solar panels. Designed to pay tribute to its namesake, indigenous artist Alex Janvier, the early design stage involved consultation with Alex Janvier to make sure Indigenous elements incorporated reflected his signature artistic style.
