    Denver, Colorado

    Founded in 2003, Arrupe Jesuit High School is a private, Roman Catholic college preparatory high school that serves economically disadvantaged students from Denver’s inner-city neighborhoods. A growing student body population and the need for a more modern learning environment precipitated the need for a new $11-million addition. The centerpiece of the project is a new three-story, 17,500-square-foot addition housing seven technology-enhanced classrooms, a new kitchen and cafeteria, a student activities room, admissions and counseling offices, an athletic office, and a student fitness room. The renovation portion of the project features a new student chapel, three new classrooms, expanded faculty offices, a new Corporate Work Study Program Commons delivering upgraded office and work space for staff, a mock office training area, and a muster room. The RMH Group designed an energy-efficient HVAC system that can move surplus heat around the building to where it is needed and utilizes energy recovery systems to reclaim heat energy that would otherwise be lost to the atmosphere. With these and other sustainable technologies in place, the HVAC system will deliver significantly (20-30%) better energy performance than what would be required by code. The RMH-designed lighting system further reduces energy consumption with efficient lamps/fixtures and occupancy sensors to automatically turn off lights when no occupants are detected in a given space. The RMH Group served as the project’s mechanical/electrical engineer.
