Milton’s Holy Rosary Catholic Elementary School could be getting a facelift.

The Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) is considering a list of new facility renewal projects and among those proposed is a new roof and the replacement of lighting and mechanical equipment at the local school.

The estimated cost for the refresh would run around approximately $1.8M and be completed in the summer of 2022.

The resolutions will be presented for HCDSB Trustee consideration and approval at the November 16 regular meeting.

Holy Rosary is one of several HCDSB schools that was built pre-2000 and are now dated with many wear and tear items that need to be addressed and brought up to the Board’s latest building standards.

Refresh projects could also include work on exterior doors, lockers, washrooms, partitions, wall tiles, flooring, stair treads, painting, asphalt, concrete and cladding repairs.

The roof repair would see a weather-tight roofing system installed. Water infiltration through a roof can lead to extensive structural damage to a school building and potentially result in mould issues.

A full assessment of the Board’s facilities roofing systems was completed in 2019.

The project is part of the HCDSB’s Long Term Capital Plan, which presents a comprehensive school accommodation plan, along with school renewal requirements to improve school facility conditions throughout the board over a five-year planning window (2021-2025).

The estimated $6.75M cost for the proposed 2022 facility renewal projects will be funded through the Board’s available capital funding allocations and reserves.
