In 2014, Companion worked with Surrey Christian School to construct a new primary facility on the existing middle school property creating a campus of 2 buildings that would work in tandem to serve the needs of the elementary school family.
The new 15,000 ft² mass timber building sits atop a full in-ground/grade parking structure, the building itself containing 15 classrooms connected by a beautiful naturally lit atrium space and an additional 5000 ft² rooftop deck for outdoor learning. Outdoor play and landscaped classroom assembly areas were constructed around the building and next to the forested creek that runs the south and east sides of the property, to complete the entirety of the project. Companion worked closely with designers and the Surrey Christian School’s building committee to collaboratively produce a facility that echoes sustainability and functionality at its core. Working with one of the leading local manufacturers of mass timber assemblies, Companion oversaw the off-site construction of custom-building components that were erected in only a few weeks on the site to form the structure of the complete building. Companion also self-performed all the concrete foundation work, dimensional lumber framing, exterior Hardie siding finish, architectural and hard landscape concrete surfaces and interior finishes to complete the project.
Winning the 2015 Fraser Valley Real Estate Board’s Top Building in Surrey, the Surrey Christian School is a shining example of what we achieve through hard work, dedication to our clients and the pursuit of excellence in construction.
