Brush, CO (November 22, 2019) – In a school gymnasium filled with students and community members, the town of Brush celebrated the opening of the newly renovated Brush Middle and High School. Maroon, white and gold balloons and banners hung along the bleachers as attendees waited to cut the ribbon on their new school.
Located in rural Colorado, Brush School District received a BEST grant to address the health, safety, security, and educational deficiencies in their current Middle School and High School. The project, designed by GMCN Architects, includes constructing a new middle school and high school complex on the current and occupied site of the old high school, and re-purposing and renovating portions of the old high school building. The project consists of roughly 129,000 sf of new construction and 42,000 sf of renovation.
“This is the whole point of what we do,” said project superintendent Gabe Madsen. “We want to make things better, serve our community and give students an opportunity to grow and succeed. We’re so proud to contribute.”
