This two-phase project consisted of a new LEED Gold certified science building, Sunlight Peak, and a renovation/two-story addition to the Challenger Point Building on Front Range Community College’s Larimer Campus. Sunlight Peak increased the number of science labs to 10 labs, with associated prep rooms and a new specialized cadaver room. The Challenger Point renovation converted the existing labs into classroom space to meet growing demand. The cast-in-place addition includes science classrooms and support facilities. The project also included an adjacent observatory. AP was able to apply creative phasing and scheduling to this project to reduce the schedule by more than four months.
