Boulder Valley Schools Columbine Replacement Elementary

Boulder, Colo.

Initially conceived as a remodeling project, Boulder's aging Columbine Elementary was instead replaced with a new state-of-the-art school building. The design significantly reduces annual operations and maintenance costs while educating children about green technologies and resource conservation.

The goal was to build the new school in an established neighborhood where some residents opposed the project. The team had to work around aging, narrow streets and limited storage space and next to a fully operational elementary school whose daily operations could not be interrupted. Despite these challenges, the result was a new building completed one month ahead of schedule and $62,000 under budget.
