Half Moon Bay Elementary School

This project, the first tilt-up concrete school in the Ottawa Carleton District School Board’s portfolio, was constructed on time and under budget. The architect embraced concrete as an element within the design, using formliners and patterns to generate shadows and textures on long elevations. The exterior wythe of concrete featured white exposed aggregate concrete that was sandblasted to reveal white quartz stone. Elevator panels, stairwells and some interior partitioning were used for shear walls.
