THE AWAITED OPENING OF CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN HS

GRAND OPENING CEREMONY

August 27, 2016

The opening of Phase 1 of the remodel/addition project was commenced with a ceremonial ribbon cutting in August 2016. While the school colors are maroon and white, the ribbon-cutting was performed with a blue ribbon to celebrate the honor CMHS holds of being a Blue Ribbon School (a prestigious qualification status awarded by the U.S. Department of Education).

Phase 2 was finished in December of 2016, which concluded the entirety of the Cheyenne Mountain Remodel/Addition project. Below is a gallery of images from the grand opening and the finished project, as well as a "look-book" of the design, construction and creative process.



The New Look has everyone asking... "What makes it the Same Mountain?"

At the grand opening, CRP released a commemorative design "look-book" with in-depth information on the school's long-awaited transformation. The booklet includes project facts, insight into the design development, ways that the traditional culture was incorporated into the new facility, building floor plans and more.

UPDATES SINCE THE NEW SCHOOL OPENED:


It was a privilege to work with such talented contractors on this project. Check out this informational project video produced by GE Johnson below.


HALLWAYS BROUGHT TO LIFE THROUGH MUSIC

The best part of our job is watching spaces come to life in ways we could never have imagined on the drawing board. Our newly finished CMHS project is featured as the backdrop to this student-directed music video of the 2017 CHSAA State Champion A Cappella group, Crimson & Slate! Such an honor to see such talent walk, and dance, through these hallways. However, one of the best frames in this video isn't even in a hallway... so make sure to watch through the end!
