    Golden, Colorado

    The new Golden High School replaces the previous structure that was recognized as the oldest continuously used high school in Colorado. The new modern, energy-efficient high school is comprised of two primary buildings. The larger building, at 120,00 square feet, houses the school’s administrative offices, the majority of classrooms, and the library. The smaller building, at 75,000 square feet, houses an auditorium, music rooms, cafeteria, kitchen, and two gymnasiums. A primary project goal was to implement innovative daylighting techniques to bring high-quality natural light into the school, while reducing energy consumption. As the lighting/daylighting consultant, RMH reviewed daylighting alternatives and cost impacts, assisted with selection of architectural glazing and solar shade devices, and provided computer modeling of daylighting performance for five spaces including classrooms and gymnasiums. RMH was also responsible for designing building power, fire alarm, and other ancillary systems.
