BUCKSBAUM CAMPUS

Enlighten Design Studio by BG Buildingworks - White Logo

Nestled in the beautiful landscape of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, The Bucksbaum Campus of Aspen Music School is a testament to the harmonious integration of education and nature. Recognized as a top-tier teaching and performance institution, the school opens its doors to over 700 of the world’s finest music students every summer. In a quest to enhance this unique learning experience, the school endeavored to refurbish and redevelop its campus to better mesh with the natural landscape. The redesigned campus features two large orchestra rehearsal halls and a stunning cantilevered pavilion perched on the edge of a pond, acting as the centerpiece of the campus, while the studios and practice rooms blend with the hillside. The restoration of disturbed areas and the implementation of tree replacement strategies have created a cohesive community campus, delicately integrated into the natural environment and adjoining Aspen Country Day School campus. The ingenious design and utilization of the campus were recognized with a Merit Award for Design by ASLA Colorado, underscoring the Bucksbaum Campus’s status as a beacon of sustainable and integrated design.

The design of Bucksbaum campus was a collaboration to bring the visions established by the architect to life.  Each building had a unique design feature that set it apart from the other buildings on the campus.  BG worked closely with the architect to highlight these key features, while still meeting the needs of the space.

ASPEN MIDDLE SCHOOL

Enlighten Design Studio by BG Buildingworks - White Logo

The new, state-of-the-art middle school was built to accommodate Aspen’s growing demand for a classroom facility, and to reflect the community’s commitment to sustainability.

BG provided MEP and LEED commissioning services for the new facility. We implemented a number of measures to promote energy efficiency. Some of these included installing a transpired solar collector to pre-heat outside air, installing high-efficiency lighting systems with daylighting and occupancy control censors, solar shading and natural ventilation cooling design, high-efficiency condensing boilers, and more.

Aspen Middle School was the first school in Colorado to achieve LEED Gold Certification. It also won a 2009 ACEC Colorado Engineering Excellence Award. Additionally, the systems are operating at half the utility cost of the previous smaller building.

EAGLE VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL

Eagle Valley High School needed to replace and expand their existing facility with newly upgraded facilities to address anticipated growing enrollment. The new school program was set to create a safe and healthy learning environment where students could thrive. The school’s program included the desire to create an environmentally sustainable project and minimize operational costs.

The project consisted of 61,000 SF of new construction and a total of 62,000 SF of renovation. The school also created 55,000 SF of new parking, a new lecture hall and studio, and a new culinary teaching space.

BG Buildingworks worked with the school district, contractors and design team to develop district-wide standards for mechanical, plumbing, lighting, and technology systems to provide consistent fixtures and systems throughout the Eagle County School District. The mechanical design consisted of roof top air handling systems with distributed variable air distribution zones and a centralized, high-efficiency boiler plant.

The building systems are controlled and monitored by a Johnson Control building automation system (BAS) connected to the district-wide central controls system for ease of maintenance as well as energy efficiency monitoring.

BG also worked with team to develop district-wide energy-efficient LED lighting fixture standards and control systems.

State-of-the-art technology, IT, audiovisual, and security systems were designed to provide the educational and safety needs of a modern high school.

EAGLE VALLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL

Eagle Valley Middle School was an expansion and renovation of an existing school built in 1980. The project program was to re-program and renovate the existing structure to meet the growing needs of the school and bring sustainable and modern building systems to create an environment that is conducive of learning, allowing students to grow and achieve.

BG worked with the school district, contractors and design team to develop district-wide standards for mechanical, plumbing, lighting, and technology systems to provide consistent fixtures and systems throughout the Eagle County School District.
