Kent Denver School – Various Projects
4000 E. Quincy Avenue
Englewood, Colorado
Client: Kent Denver School
Contractor: CMC Group

Since it’s inception in 1922 as the Kent School for Girls and merger with the Denver Country Day School, Kent Denver is one of the premier non-profit, private schools in the region. The school educates nearly 700 middle and high school students. The campus includes 200 acres, sixty-three classrooms, ten science labs, four indoor gymnasiums, two performing arts theaters and two amphitheaters, two reservoirs, and eight playing fields.

Our CG team has worked on campus for over seven years providing geotechnical engineering, special inspection, and materials testing services for various projects including: Yates Fieldhouse, Duncan Center (Boettcher Foundation Library) renovations, design of Horn Field (multi-use artificial turf field), new athletic field lighting, a new middle school building, a new high school building, and several other campus infrastructure projects.

Mapleton Public Schools – 2017 District-wide Improvements
Adventure Elementary, Global Leadership Academy,
Welby Community School, and others
Adams County, Colorado
Client: Mapleton Public Schools, NV5

Upon the approval of a $150 Million bond issue in November 2016, Mapleton Public Schools planned to upgrade or renovate seven of the district’s campuses: Welby Community School (addition), Adventure Elementary (replace), Global Campus (replace), Explore Elementary (relocate), a new Midtown PK-8, Valley View K-8 (addition or replacement), and Monterey Community School (addition or replacement). Based on our extensive experience in similar education facilities, our team was awarded the contract for Geotechnical Services for these improvements.

Each site was particularly challenging since the field-work needed to be performed during the school week. In order to complete the field investigation, the CG team took special safety precautions that included cordoning off the boring locations. Field activities were closely monitored by district facilities staff, and in some cases, teachers brought out students to learn about our geotechnical investigation process.

Design of improvements are currently underway but include entire new buildings to replace Adventure Elementary and the replacement of a single building at Global Academy with four new buildings (Preschool, K-3, 4-8, and a new High School).
