Work on the Claude Watson School of the Arts involved the construction of a new facility consisting of classrooms, a library and physical educational spaces. This building replaced an existing facility situated on an active site in Toronto. The City of Toronto presented the school with an Award of Excellence in the category of “Public Building in Context” at the Urban Design Awards ceremony in September 2007.

A complete site staging and hoarding plan was prepared and implemented to segregate the construction activities from the operations of the existing school, which remained active during the build. Construction activities were planned and coordinated in close coordination with the facility managers of the existing facility to minimize impact.
