Our Common Home
Overall, the project was an immense success, achieving unprecedented levels of staff engagement while demonstrating how competent the ECSD project staff and subject matter experts are. As stated in the project vision: “Our common home is to be a unifying facility that will help us effectively deliver on our Catholic educational mission.”
Avison Young is pleased to confirm that the entire project was indeed a unifying process. The learnings will be embodied and transferred to the project staff and for the organization’s direction for decades to come. This will further benefit ECSD and its stakeholders in the form of a solid real estate asset that has increased in economic value by an estimated $18 million, based on the building improvements and current market conditions.
Moreover, by focusing on the reuse of existing building materials and systems, another $6 million was saved in the project process. This enhanced facility, completed with an emphasis on budget and reuse, has therefore achieved both financial and environmental success.
