Frederick High School
Frederick High School in Frederick, Colorado is St. Vrain Valley School District's newest high school. Design Concepts' role included design for athletic elements including a synthetic 9-lane 400m track, synthetic turf in the shared football and soccer stadium, bleachers capable of seating 1,152 home and 493 away fans, post-tensioned tennis courts, three multi-use practice fields, one Varsity and one JV baseball field, and one Varsity and one JV softball field. Design Concepts also designed two large and welcoming student plazas, as well as all planting and irrigation design.
Throughout the site, surface drainage was utilized wherever possible to limit piping and encourage water quality efforts. Bioswales are located at the lower end of the student parking lot to pick up drainage. The site is on track to earn LEED Gold.
The site was irrigated with reuse water from the Town of Frederick, utilizing a pond built on-site from which to pull water. The pond is also capable of being filled from a domestic supply, should the reuse water ever not be available.
