For Aspen parents, one of the most revered educational experiences in the area is the Aspen Community School. The longstanding K-8 school in Woody Creek prides itself on a unique educational approach, helping students meet and exceed their potential. Now, students are delighting in a new campus building and gymnasium, and all of us at Precision Construction West are proud to have been part of this project.
Todd Morrison, owner of Precision Construction West, said, “The Aspen Community School is situated in one of the most gorgeous parts of Woody Creek. The school’s focus on outdoor and experiential education played a huge part in this build, which is why building into the existing hillside was such a natural progression. It felt amazing to know that this project would result in a place where children can go to learn and thrive.”
In partnership with Evans Chaffee Construction Group, we worked together to build the new Aspen Community School and gymnasium for students, teachers and parents. The Aspen Community School is an award-winning charter school that is known for their academic excellence. They focus on providing students with small class sizes and personalized instruction that focuses on the visual and performing arts, community responsibility, social justice, and more.
Specifically, we supervised and managed the structural framing and exterior siding/trim for the new 14,000-square-foot K-8 school building and the 8,000 square foot gymnasium. The new 8,000-square-foot gymnasium was built with state-of-the-art glulam, or glued laminated timber. It is stronger than steel and offers more stiffness and strength than traditional lumber. The original structure was built in 1970, so it was certainly time for a refresh to help both of the structures last for years to come.
