Project Description

Eagle Valley Elementary, Eagle, CO; 67,000 s.f. addition; $23.5 million; 2017 – 2018

Master planning, design assist and full Construction Administration. TAB Associates completed Master planning prior to the 2016 bond. We teamed up with DLR during the design and construction document process. Together, we delivered a new elementary school to replace the aging existing building. The original school was based on the open concept of the 1970’s with center core classrooms. There have been many interior renovations throughout the years but with poor results regarding the mechanical distribution, poor acoustics and unequal classroom sizes. Eagle Valley Elementary School is part of the International Baccalaureate program and is PK-5. Part of a K-8 campus design which began with site studies by TAB Associates, Inc. in 2015, was to create a new campus from the existing campus with Eagle Valley Middle. Incorporating the International Baccalaureate program with dual language capabilities were the central concepts for the design of the new school.  The floor plan allows for the flexibility needed to accommodate the needs of a dual language program as well as a variety of open common spaces which reflect the needs of the 21st century student.
