Greyback broke ground in April of 2018, to begin the construction of the new three-storey Canyon Falls Middle School in the Upper Mission area of Kelowna, BC. The school was built to address the issue of over-crowding in educational facilities in this region.
Designed for 21st-century learning, Canyon Falls Middle School hosts a series of interdisciplinary learning pods, where groups of classrooms open into a large collaborative maker space, allowing the students to share their ideas and work together to create new ones.
Classrooms on the first level open up to outdoor learning spaces to connect students with nature and collaborate outdoors. The majority of spaces are multi-functional to maximize their potential, like the stage in the atrium which transforms a circulatory and casual area to a learning place for plays and presentations. Similar informal and multi-functional learning spaces are distributed throughout the school to enhance the learning community.
The Greyback team was tasked to complete the school within a daunting 16-month timeframe, as it needed to be ready to welcome students for the start of the school year. As a team that is highly skilled in planning and executing projects, Greyback welcomed the challenge, and the students were able to move into their beautiful new space on time.
