Expansion Project

A property has been purchased down the street from the current school at 2254 Orchard Road to be the second campus for Halton Waldorf School, and future home of Halton Waldorf  High School. Site work is set to commence, and we are excited about the design and environmental features of our new campus.
 

From design development to construction, to ongoing operations, Halton Waldorf School embraces our environmental leadership. Sustainability is not merely a program but a Waldorf education standard – a conscious and intentional approach to every step that we take. With our environmental history in mind, we look to our future.

Sustainable Architecture and Construction

HWS carefully selected our architect and building management firm for this project. Green Propeller Design of Milton, Ontario is our architect of choice, as many of their core values align with ours.  Now, more than ever, it is time to use resources responsibly in the built environment. This means changing the way buildings are planned, designed, constructed and operated so that they incorporate sustainable design principles.

Our lead architect on the project is LEED® AP with the Canada Green Building Council. These credentials demonstrate advanced knowledge in green building as well as expertise with the LEED rating system.

We are proud of the design of our new school campus:

  • Plan for one story building with use of lower level

  • 4 classrooms plus administrative area

  • Small class sizes, low student-teacher ratios

  • Outdoor green space for learning

  • Exceeds Canadian building environmental standards

  • Non-institutional character and design features

  • Landscape plan that features a wide variety of trees and native plants

There are a large number of substantial trees on the property, and to the extent possible, the trees will be retained. The outdoor area along Dryden will have naturalized plantings.

Based on the arborist report, some existing trees will need to be removed from the property. The wood from the trees will be kept for use on the property, and all trees will be replaced in accordance with the City of Burlington bylaws.

The landscape plan includes the planting of 23 new trees and 175 new shrubs; in addition to numerous grasses and perennials.
