Last night Haselden and Cuningham Group hosted a tour of the new Corkins Center at Graland Country Day School as part of the USGBC’s 2016 Green School Summit. The 23,422 SF expansion added on to the 7,000 SF portion of the middle school that Haselden renovated. Design architect Bowie Gridley and Architect of Record Cuningham Group designed the new space which comprises classrooms, a learning commons, offices, a digital media room, science rooms, and the Gates innovation lab, among other spaces. Its unique, multi-story design offers abundant amounts of natural light, including full-height, garage-style windowed doors in the lab area.

Roll-up garage door windows in the Gates Innovation Lab open a world of possibilities for the students.

The grand opening of the Corkins Center was held on October 19th. Both students and administrators spoke at a morning assembly where they debuted an entertaining video tour of the new space led by Marty Twarogowski, Director of Innovative Learning, some of which was picked up by 9News! This was followed by a parade through the new building, and dedications of each individual area. Classes in the amazing new addition started on October 24th.

This is the 5th year Haselden has been a sponsor of the USGBC Colorado’s Green School Summit.
