Weld County School District 6 awarded Roche Constructors the $22 million Career and Technical Education (CTE) Center/Jefferson High School Relocation project and the $5.5 million Billie Martinez Elementary School addition and renovation project. Both projects are located in Greeley, Colorado.
Jefferson High School will be relocating from 1315 4th Avenue to the former Colorado Department of Transportation property located at the corner of 14th Avenue and 2nd Street. The site will be demolished and rebuilt to accommodate a new Jefferson High School and some of the existing buildings will be renovated to allow for the expansion of the CTE programs at Jefferson. The project is being designed by Hord Coplan Macht.
Located adjacent to the new Jefferson High School site, Billie Martinez will be renovated and expanded to increase the student capacity from 395 students to 650 students and will also eliminate the use of modular classroom space. Designed by Cuningham, the 12,600-square-foot addition will include classroom and support space as well as an expansion of the open space/cafeteria area to improve circulation and better serve the student population.
RLH Engineering is the owner’s representative for both projects.
Design is underway on both projects, and preconstruction will start immediately. Construction will be complete by August 2023.
