Centennial House Renovations by Architectural Technology Students
CCD's Architectural Technology students are currently working on a historical preservation project.

CCD Architectural Technology students are engaged in a first-of-its-kind historic preservation project on one of the oldest houses in the 9th Street Historic Park. Partnering with Auraria Higher Education Center's Campus Facilities and CU Denver, the Morrison-based HistoriCorps preservation training nonprofit is leading the effort to repair and restore to operational status the historic wood windows on the Centennial House, which will be occupied by Nolbert Chavez, a Regent of the University of Colorado.

HistoriCorps orchestrates work efforts such as this nationally to train the next generation of historic preservation specialists through the act of restoring buildings in need of immediate assistance. CCD students are learning about construction sequencing, job site organization and safety, and extensive tool use, as well as the technology of traditional buildings and the philosophy of historic preservation.
