Commercial Project

Centennial Senior Secondary School

Centennial Senior Secondary School is in the heart of Coquitlam, B.C. and was originally established in 1967. Centennial has approximately 1300 students in grades 11 and 12. It is structured on a semester system. The Coquitlam School Board made the decision to build a new school on the same property as the original school. The project was initially announced by the province in 2009. Detailed plans for the school replacement were presented to the public on January 17, 2012. Construction of the new school began in late 2013, and was completed for the September 2017 start of the current school year.

The project includes construction of a new Neighbourhood Learning Centre that will house youth programs and post-secondary programs. The school has a teaching kitchen, metal, automotive and carpentry workshops, and a 220-seat theatre. Design features include classrooms with moveable walls, flexible learning spaces for student-teacher collaboration, and an outdoor amphitheatre.

TEC single system warranty was applied to the project for a period of 10 years. With a 25% plus flyash content in the concrete slab, the relative humidity was still above 95% after a full year of curing. TEC Liquidam moisture mitigation was used to allow the installation of the American Biltrite Pure Rubber flooring to continue without any further delay. Levelset 200, deep pour 3, and feather edge 330 were used to level and patch various areas of the school. TEC 752 premium adhesive was used for the installation of 79,000 square feet of American Biltrite Pure Imagine sheet rubber into all of the classrooms, common areas and second level corridors.
