Cuningham Group recently took home honors at the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE) Rocky Mountain Chapter Awards ceremony. These awards are an opportunity for firms to share their planning and design experience of educational facilities with the community. We’re pleased and honored to be recognized in three categories: Summit (renovations), Peak (new construction) and People’s Choice.
In the renovations category, the Corkins Center at Graland Country Day School won the Summit Design Award. Graland Country Day is a private Pre-K through 8th grade school in Denver’s Hilltop neighborhood. Cuningham Group partnered with Bowie Gridley Architects to design the Corkins Center, a new Innovation Lab and Learning Commons addition and Middle School renovation.
Pathways Innovation Center / Roosevelt High School of Natrona County Schools won the Peak Merit Award for new construction. Natrona County School District’s new 38-acre campus in Casper, Wyoming, includes two high schools under one roof: Roosevelt and Pathways Innovation Center. Both strive to engage students and provide innovative, personalized educational opportunities that will prepare them for success beyond graduation.
Meadowlark School of Boulder Valley School District took home the People’s Choice Award. Meadowlark School is a new Pre-K through 8th grade school in a fast-growing residential community in Erie, Colorado. It is the only new school community among the 2014 bond projects and was planned to follow the District’s mission and strategic plan, illustrate 21st Century learning environments, meet LEED Gold Standards, and be Net Zero Energy Use-ready per the District’s Green Guiding Principles.
