Project Description 

Graland Country Day School’s Anschutz Commons Building and Hamilton Reiman Building project was a phased renovation/addition that included razing the Gates Science Building to make room for a new commons building; a major renovation of the Hamilton Reiman Building; and a 440 sf elevator and lobby addition and extensive ME upgrades. Construction was conducted on a fully-occupied campus.

The new Anschutz Commons Building is a 15,000 sf, two-level dining hall and assembly center that includes a 2,000 sf commercial kitchen. The Hamilton Reiman Building renovation eliminated the cafeteria/kitchen facility and created a new 10,000 sf performing arts center with seating for 300. ME upgrades included new RTU’s, electrical, and fire sprinklers throughout.

Green and sustainable components include daylighting, natural ventilation, re-use of existing building materials, sustainable food service practices, and recycling and composting in the new Anschutz Commons.

The Anschutz Commons Building project received LEED Gold certification in May 2012.
