General Contractor Robert J. Bourgon and Associates Ltd.
to Build New Kemptville Public School

By Mark Calder

(Kemptville)Robert J Bourgon and Associates Ltd. has been named as the general contractor to build the new Kemptville Public School.

The Cornwall-based company will begin construction on the facility shortly, said Jeremy Hobbs, superintendent of human resources and operational services for the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB). Bourgon has a history of success with the board, having overseen construction of Central Public Schooland Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute. The company is also the general contractor for Bridgewood Public School, the new UCDSB elementary school under construction in Cornwall.

“I’m so pleased our elementary students will soon enjoy a new school in Kemptville,” said Chair Jeff McMillan. “This will be a facility we can all be proud of in which our students will enjoy rich learning experiences allowing them to grow and adapt to an ever-changing world.”

“I’m happy we’re working together with the Municipality of North Grenville to move this project forward, and that it won’t be long before our students are enjoying a spacious, modern facility in which they can be truly engaged,” said Trustee Lisa Swan.

The new single-storey school will be located on the west side of County Road 44, about 1.2 kilometres north of County Road 43. Designed by Architecture 49, the 43,836 square-foot structure will feature new classrooms, project/resource rooms adjacent to classrooms, air conditioning, an open, multi-function resource space with a stage, gymnasium and a large greenspace for a yard. It will replace the current, aging Kemptville Public School, located on Reuben Crescent. That school was originally built in 1958 with an addition in 1978.

The Kemptville Public School construction project is being financed by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Ministry officials are pleased it is proceeding as part of the Ministry’s ongoing efforts to provide quality schools for student learning.

The new school is scheduled to open to students as early as January 8, 2018.
