BROOMFIELD – Haselden Construction recently broke ground on the expansion of Holy Family High School in Broomfield. The 34,000-square-foot expansion will include eight new classrooms, a fitness center and auxiliary gym with expanded locker rooms, and an enlarged cafeteria, allowing the school to grow from 690 students to 800 students.
“As the current stewards of Holy Family, it’s our obligation to ensure its future and pass it on to the next generation,” Holy Family Principal Mattew Hauptly said as he addressed the Holy Family board of trustees, students, and faculty; members of the Archdiocese of Denver and Catholic Foundation; and community leaders during the ground breaking ceremony.
The expansion, expected to be completed in time for the 2019-2020 school year, will allow Holy Family to deepen its science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum as well as offer robotics courses. The new gymnasium and fitness center will enable students and sports teams to practice during school hours, rather than before or after school.
“With some elbow grease, tenacity, and a lot of prayer, we are eager to start a new chapter for our institution. We look forward to offering our students a deeper curriculum, more STEM classes, a spacious commons, and more gym time, as well as the ability to say ‘yes’ to parents who want a Catholic education for their kids,” added Hauptly.
Haselden has a skilled education division that has completed numerous K-12 and higher education projects, including ground-up new school construction, summer remodels with rigorous completion timelines, and renovations and expansions during the school year that revolve around students’ safety and schedules. The company uses a proprietary Methods and Procedure communication tool to ensure school administrators and teachers are always aware and informed of construction activities and how it will impact students, staff, and the learning experience.
“Our relationship with Holy Family extends back almost a decade to when we first completed a small structural remodel for the campus, and it’s continued to grow over the years,” said Jarrod Fugate, vice president for Haselden Construction. “We’re excited to be a part of this next phase of growth for Holy Family and to be able to provide them with the facilities needed to grow their campus and further serve their current and potential students and families, as well as the community.”
