New Oak Bay High project to break ground this summer

The design and construction of a new Oak Bay High will begin after the Greater Victoria School District selects one of three construction firms bidding on the project.

Victoria-based Farmer Construction, Yellowridge Design Build of Port Moody and Bouygues Building Canada, a subsidiary of France-based Bouygues Group, have been invited to prepare and submit comprehensive proposals to the school district.

The district will evaluate each submission and will select the proposal “offering the greatest value for the benefit of the students and the community, within the approved capital funding.” With a project cost estimated at $50.1-million, the school will accommodate 1,300 students and be built on the same property as the current school. The school district anticipates construction to start this summer.
