St. George’s Renovation and Restoration: Updating a 1913 Gothic Revival School

Vancouver Heritage Foundation
Date of Event: 
Wednesday, April 27, 2016 - 12:00pm

As a part of Vancouver Heritage Foundation’s Brown Bag – Lunch & Learn series, Robert Lemon, Architect, and Neil Piller, Director of Operations at St. George’s School, will discuss the award-winning 2015 restoration of the 1912 St. George’s Preparatory Boys School. This remarkable granite Gothic Revival school, located in Dunbar, was built in 1913 for the Convent of the Sacred Heart as a day and boarding school for girls from 1913 – 1979. St. George’s purchased the building in 1979, enabling it to remain in continual use as a school today.
