STEAD School at Reunion | Commerce City, Colorado
Public Infrastructure - Civil Engineering
The STEAD School at Reunion is a next-generation agricultural high school with innovative facilities to build future leaders in the food, animal, plant, and environmental sciences. The 14-acre campus includes a collaborative agribusiness lab, soil and seeds lab, greenhouse, and outdoor farm. CORE’s scope of work includes conceptual utility, grading plans, drainage design, and construction plans that encompass the school and associated parking lot, utilities, and drainage infrastructure.
The client will implement the project in phases, bringing complexity to maintaining constructability for each distinct phase. Typical commercial site development involves developing and completing one pad site at a time — this project’s pad will be split into different phases, necessitating extensive coordination to integrate the varying design constraints into one cohesive development. CORE is coordinating the phases with the overall school campus completion while working with the project engineer on the surrounding roadway design. The firm’s ability to adapt to constantly changing district improvements and demanding internal design changes has produced quick and accurate design implementation to help the client maintain project momentum. CORE project managers have extensive experience meeting the rigorous and constantly moving pieces of this project while being mindful of the tight budget.
