Cherry Creek Innovation Campus


Location: Englewood, CO
Size: 117,000 SF
Owner: Cherry Creek School District
Market: K-12 Education / Current Project
Architect: DLR Group


This new 117,000 square foot facility will give high school students across the district access to unique, state-of-the-art learning spaces to explore future careers. The enhanced college-and career-based facility will support multiple educational pathways including advanced manufacturing, business services, culinary/hospitality, health services, infrastructure engineering, IT/STEAM, and transportation. The facility will include a variety of learning environments and social spaces from traditional classrooms for instruction, to more intense labs and industry-specific spaces that support real-world training or trade certification programs. The building will be a primarily CMU and steel framed structure, with a crawlspace to house the mechanical equipment. The campus will have an “i-commons” as the heart of the campus to link the programs together. The exterior of the building will feature large glass elements to increase daylighting within the spaces and will be clad with a combination of metal panels and masonry veneer. Interior finishes will vary widely to align with the use of the spaces, but common areas will feature stainless steel/glass handrails, polished concrete floors and exposed structural elements. The interior spaces will have a large amount of glass to allow for observation of the lab spaces from adjacent common spaces.
