    Englewood, Colorado

    Founded in 1922, Kent Denver School is a college preparatory high school and middle school comprised of five academic buildings and multiple athletic facilities located on a 200-acre campus in metropolitan Denver. The new Duncan Center—which replaces the school’s existing library—continues the Kent Denver School tradition of providing its student body with modern, interactive, and highly functional learning environments. The Duncan Center is comprised of multiple technology-enhanced spaces including the Duncan Center Commons (an open space that can accommodate up to 50 students), eight collaboration rooms to facilitate dynamic interaction among students, four technology-equipped classrooms, the Office of Digital Learning, a global teleconferencing center to connect Kent Denver students with others students around the world, and the Boettcher Foundation Library. The Duncan Center will also help to close the digital divide for students from several underfunded Denver public middle schools who will share this 21st Century learning facility with Kent Denver students. The Duncan Center’s HVAC system was configured by RMH to be flexible and efficient by utilizing a variety of sustainable design technologies, including variable-refrigerant flow (VRF) units to deliver substantial energy savings at partial-load conditions. The RMH-engineered plumbing systems were designed to minimize water consumption, which helps to further enhance the facility’s green profile.
