Limestone Learning Foundation

Construction of the new Kingston Secondary School (KSS) is well under way and the shell of the 171,000-square-foot facility is taking shape. Work continues on the site, however, unforeseen delays and disruptions have, unfortunately, put the project behind schedule.

Several unforeseen disruptions, including weather delays and labour actions, put the project behind schedule. Given the size and scope of this large and complex build, setbacks sometimes occur, resulting in a cumulative impact on the overall construction schedule. 

Work to move learning materials, furniture and technology into the new school will occur over late spring and summer 2020. Students and staff will move into Kingston Secondary School in September 2020 for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Students and staff will remain at KCVI for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

Bondfield Construction was awarded the contract to build the Limestone District School Board’s new Kingston Secondary School on the Lyons and Kirkpatrick site (former Queen Elizabeth Collegiate & Vocational Institute property).

Bondfield was awarded the contract from among seven construction firms following a pre-qualification and tender process. Bondfield, a family-owned construction company with offices in Concord and Kanata, Ontario, previously built the École Sir John A. Macdonald Public School as well as dozens of other elementary and secondary schools throughout Ontario.

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
