The École Élémentaire Catholique Saint-Joseph production began soon after Collège Boréal was nearing completion. Lessons learned from Collège Boréal were applied to École Saint-Joseph to increase efficiency. New hardware and software permitted even greater flexibility and capabilities. High resolution vehicles and people were added to exterior renderings which were not capable due to memory limitations in previous productions. Sun studies were utilized to confirm south and west window shading assembly effectiveness (which they did). 3d interior aerial floor plans were created to showcase the internal overall flow patterns.
The new school has sixteen classrooms grouped into three sections, each of which is designed to meet the needs of a certain age group. The kindergarten section is made up of spacious classrooms bathed in natural light. It boasts its own entrance and is situated next to the administrative office and the teachers’ room for enhanced security. The grades 1 to 4 section features a curved hallway and coatrooms hidden from view by showcases which will used to display student projects. The grades 5 to 8 section is located on the second floor and is fully accessible by elevator.
