Boulder Valley School District: 2006 Bond Issue Case Study Boulder, Colorado

Hillcrest Glass, flat glass and glazing contractor

Background:
In 2006 voters authorized a $296.8 million bond issue for the Boulder Valley School District. Boulder Valley schools serve 28,000 students in grades K – 12, and employ 4,000 people. This measure passed by the greatest margin in history and was for the largest amount of any bond to date. The funds were earmarked for building upgrades, information technology, athletic facilities and play grounds. Every school in the Boulder Valley School District was allotted funds. As of October 2009 25 projects have been completed and 16 are underway.

Hillcrest Glass was awarded the contracts for custom glass and glazing for the following schools:

  • Crestview Elementary – Boulder, Colorado
  • Flatirons Elementary – Boulder, Colorado
  • Foothill Elementary – Boulder, Colorado
  • Summit Middle School – Boulder, Colorado
  • Southern Hills Middle School – Boulder, Colorado
  • Peak to Peak Charter School – Boulder, Colorado
  • Louisville Elementary – Louisville, Colorado

Several different general contractors were involved, our work as a sub contractor started in early 2008 and all but Louisville Elementary have been completed.

The Projects:
Special Considerations:

  • Optimize summer break and other school vacation days
  • Minimize impact on students and teachers
  • Provide a safe environment for students and staff
  • Often have unique materials and designs
  • Remodels of older buildings often yield surprises

Conclusion:
Hillcrest Glass is proud to be associated with the Boulder Valley School District and values the contribution that we were able to make to help improve the learning environments for many students in Boulder schools. The upgrades to the schools are great improvements both functionally and aesthetically and help to improve the quality of the overall educational experience in Boulder Valley Schools.
