Regis F. Groff Campus

Denver, Colorado

It’s not uncommon for construction projects to run over, especially with the tight timeframe they were already under. But they knew what was at stake with us not being able to move on time and they made it happen and worked with us to move schools and be ready to go with kids on January 4th.

Denver Public Schools’  Regis F. Groff High School Campus is located on a 16 acre site in the growing community of Green Valley Ranch. The campus is the home of two high performing schools; KIPP Public Charter Schools and STRIVE Preparatory School.   The  Master Plan for the Regis F. Groff High School consisted of a Phase I facility that accommodated 500 students, grades nine and ten for both schools, and later grew to a 1000 student high school in Phase II.

Flexibility and 21st Century Learning were the foundations of the design.  Flexible classrooms, learning environments, outdoor learning areas and break out spaces, allow the schools to adapt to a wide variety of teaching strategies and can accommodate students different learning needs.

Phase I of the project was completed in December of 2015, utilizing the Design+Build delivery method, which allowed the Design Team to condense the design and construction of this project from a typical two and half years down to 18 months.

The Regis F. Groff High School is a beautiful and engaging learning community,  that will help blend the physical, academic and digital worlds to create 21st Century Thinkers.


Phase II of the project recently wrapped up in August of 2017. The second phase included a joint venture “Main Street”. Which allowed each school to have separate check in areas and presence on the outside of the building, but keeping a harmonious feeling on the inside. Phase II also saw the addition of a library, lecture, flexible classroom space. Designed to transform to meet various needs the room can be transformed to meet the needs of whatever the day requires.

It was a pleasure to work with teams that understood the need for bright and open spaces, classroom designs with certain activities and safety considerations in mind, and the opportunity for students to create a campus identity based on not only on pride for their academic and extracurricular achievements, but also their brand new campus.
