EAGLE, COLORADO (PRWEB) January 12, 2016
Precision Construction West (PCW) proudly partnered with Evans Chaffee Construction Group to build the new Aspen Community School and Gymnasium (K-8 Campus). Located in Woody Creek, Colorado, the campus was founded in 1970 and has long been a revered educational experience for students in the local Aspen community.
Specifically, PCW (http://pcwbuilds.com/) supervised and managed the structural framing and exterior siding/trim for the new14,000-square-foot K-8 school building and the 8,000 square foot gymnasium. The new 8,000-square-foot gymnasium was built with state-of-the-art glulam, or glued laminated timber. It is stronger than steel and offers more stiffness and strength than traditional lumber, which will help this structure to last for years to come.
In addition to their unique teaching approach, Todd Morrison, owner of Precision Construction West, loves the Aspen Community School campus’ unique hillside location and geographical and topographical siting and setting. He adds, “The Aspen Community School is situated in one of the most gorgeous parts of Woody Creek. The school’s focus on outdoor and experiential education played a huge part in this build, which is why building into the existing hillside was such a natural progression. It felt amazing to know that this project would result in a place where children can go to learn and thrive.”
The Aspen Community School (http://discovercompass.org/aspen-community-school/) is an award-winning charter school that is known for their academic excellence. They focus on providing students with small class sizes and personalized instruction that focuses on the visual and performing arts, community responsibility, social justice, and more.
