Funded through the Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) program, this renovation and precast concrete addition to the existing 118,820-sf Lake County High School created a high-performing, 21st-century learning environment for students while celebrating Leadville's natural environment and history. The school provides a variety of learning environments from general classrooms, science laboratories and project labs, designed for flexibility and adaptability. Spatial boundaries are easily modified or reconfigured from small to large group classes and extend into community congregation spaces. The new 61,000-sf high school classroom area addition – a double stacked wing – includes up-to-date science labs and wireless connection throughout, making every area a learning environment.

The project is Certified LEED Gold and has received the following awards:
