This project is a replacement school accommodating 418 elementary students in the heritage district of Kleinburg. mc architects worked closely with Vaughan Heritage to develop a school design that aligned with the historical aesthetics of the area. The site houses a 1,250 sq. ft., non-operating Train Station referred to as the ‘Scout House'. Originally located 5 km west of Kleinburg in Nashville, Ontario, it was critical that the construction of the school be sensitive to the integrity of the Scout House.

Kleinburg also exemplifies environmental initiatives through its extensive use of permeable paving on site in creating underground stormwater storage, the reduction of light pollution, optimization of the energy performance of the building, as well as extensively using local and recycled materials in the construction of the building.
