Lynn Fripps Elementary School is based upon the use of a previous design in order to achieve an accelerated completion date, as requested by School District No. 35. Modifications were required to update the layout to Ministry of Education standards, Neighborhood Learning Center requirements, site specific requirements, as well as LEED Gold certification. The finalized design resulted in several distinctive blocks: a two storey classroom wing with twenty standard-size classrooms, a one-storey centralized administration, staff and library core, and a gymnasium / multipurpose wing, with space allocated for community use. Significant design features include the extensive use of wooden structure throughout the library and administration area, as well as in two raised clerestories over the second floor corridor.
