Nonprofit Project: a contemporary interpretation of sustainable construction

The 52,444-square-foot Boulder Jewish Community Center (Boulder JCC), while grounded in the past, is a contemporary interpretation of today’s sustainable construction. The Center was designed and built by Colorado-based RB+B Architects and Calcon Constructors, who desired to create something beautiful, functional, and unique. 

The Boulder JCC includes a 74.4 kW photovoltaic array located on multiple rooftops. The main rooftop is a highly visible and gently curved standing seam metal roof. In addition to solar on the main facility, a 7.2 kW array is installed on the adjacent barn at the “Milk and Honey Farm.” The Farm is 100% powered by solar and serves as a valuable tool for the Boulder JCC’s educational and preschool programs.
