The Sooke school district has selected three teams of builders and designers to compete for the job of constructing one of two new high schools on the West Shore.
The district issued a request for qualifications last November and chose the finalists from six applicants.
The design-build finalists are: Heatherbrae Builders and KMBR Architects Planners; Yellowridge Construction and Graham Hoffart Mathiasen Architects; and EllisDon-Kinetic Construction and CEI Architecture.
The winning design-build team is expected to be announced in May.
The new school for 1,200 students will be built on the site of the former Glen Lake Elementary School, between Glen Lake Road and Langford Road.
The district recently issued a request for qualifications to build a second school for 800 students at Royal Bay in Colwood.
The two new schools will replace Belmont Secondary and are slated to open in 2015. The district has more information about both new schools posted here.
