Edmonton, Alberta-based Clark Builders is heading back to the classroom with a CA$124 million ($91.1 million) contract to build a new secondary school in British Columbia, Canada. 

Parent firm Turner Construction, which is headquartered in New York City, touted Clark’s win of a design-build contract for the new George Pringle Secondary School in the city of West Kelowna in a news release. Clark snagged the project via a competitive bid process with Central Okanagan Public Schools.

The project is another feather in the education portfolio of Clark, which serves institutional, commercial and industrial clients across Western and Northern Canada. Last year, the firm teamed up with Turner to build a $54.5 million mass timber student housing facility at the University of Fraser Valley in British Columbia. 

The school will be built with greenhouse gas and energy reduction strategies achieved through a sustainable geo-exchange system for heating and cooling. The energy efficient design features also includes heat recovery, building automation and lighting control, and incorporates mass timber components. 

The school will accommodate 1,200 students, Turner said, and is slated to open for the September 2027 school year.
