The Denver Architectural Foundation is excited to recap our past project tour: Community College of Denver!
The CCD Student Learning and Success Building involves Student Service and complex remodeling to an existing 2-story masonry structure.
The 2-part project includes a LEED-Gold-certified 85,000 sf new building and 30,000 sf of remodeling to the College’s existing 1974-era South Classroom building.
The scope of this remodel involves Mechanical Systems upgrades, reconfiguration for greater efficiency, improved way-finding, flexibility and function.
An extensive and detailed programming effort resulted from close collaboration with CCD Student Affairs and CCD Education Provosts including the complex Student Enrollment/Testing/ Financial aid process, and welcoming places that support student interaction and a strong sense of “home.”
The collective guiding principal used to evaluate nearly every decision has been “Stewardship of the Student Funds.” The cost of the building is: $43,000,000.
