EllisDon is polishing a $71 million crown jewel at Seneca College’s King Campus in Ontario.

The Mississauga, Ontario-based construction and building services company is in the middle of a king-sized expansion project that involves the design and construction of new academic and extracurricular facilities that will increase the college’s range of programs and provide space for an additional 1,450 students.

“EllisDon is excited to be working with Seneca on the project,” says Andrew Anderson, senior project manager. “We have a great history of working together, and this being Seneca’s first use of the public-private partnership delivery model, it provides us with the opportunity to further demonstrate our ability to be flexible and adaptive to their needs.”

To meet the education needs of residents in the rapidly developing town of Erie, Colo., Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) last year began building Meadowlark School. About 570 prekindergarten through eighth grade students will attend the new state-of-the-art school in the fall. “Boulder Valley School District has about 27,000 students with 56 schools covering about 540 square miles,” BVSD Project Manager Tom Blahak says. “A piece of the Town of Erie is located in Boulder County and it’s our first building this far East.”

BVSD began area assessments for Meadowlark in 2013 and in 2014 passed a $576 million bond issue to build it and replace three other schools. “It’s still the largest public school bond issuance in Colorado history,” Blahak says. “Meadowlark total cost is $41.6 million with construction cost amounting to about $32.2 million.”
