The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board has chosen +VG Architects of Brantford to design the new Catholic Central High School that will be located on McDougall Avenue.

“We’re very excited that this firm will be leading the project,” said Board Chair Fulvio Valentinis. “They’re a reputable, well-established company that has a long history of taking novel and innovative approaches to the buildings they create. We’re really looking forward to see what they design for our new school. ”

In 2016 the Board received confirmation it would get about $26M in funding from the Ministry of Education to build a new school. It received another $7M in June of 2019 to acquire an 11-acre piece of property on McDougall Avenue, less than a kilometer south of the current building on Tecumseh Road East.

+VG was selected from a list of seven architectural firms that were pre-qualified to bid on the project, and recent local work included drafting the 50-year campus master plan at the University of Windsor.
The next step in the process is to strike a school design committee to review building needs and space elements and to hire a cost consultant who will make sure that the project stays on budget.

Once the Board has approved a final design, a tender will be issued for pre-qualified contractors to bid on the construction of the school.

The school is expected to open in September of 2022.
