Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (NSTIR) has awarded a contract to Dexter Construction for the regulated materials abatement and deconstruction of the existing school. The work also includes the construction of a temporary access driveway along the east side of the existing sports field that will provide access to the construction site during demolition activities and the construction of the new school.

Work to install the site fencing is scheduled to begin on Monday, September 25th, The regulated materials abatement will begin the first week of October and will continue until January 2017. Deconstruction of the existing building is scheduled to begin mid-December and will continue until the end of January 2017. The entrance to the temporary access driveway is expected to be installed in October, however the driveway proper is not expected to be installed until mid- November.

Dexter Construction will make every effort to minimize impacts from the construction process on adjacent neighbours during construction.
