For more than 50 years, SCD has been recognized nationally as a leader in recreation, athletic complex and multipurpose event center planning and facility design. The 47-person firm maintains offices in Denver, Chicago and Ann Arbor. Over the years SCD has worked closely with hundreds of municipalities, colleges and universities to create award-winning facilities.
SCD has provided planning and design services at nearby facilities including: Central Park Recreation Center in Stapleton, the Reunion Community Center in Commerce City, and the Highlands Ranch Recreation Center at Southridge. SCD and landscape architect partner John Norris of Norris Design have both worked with Ken-Caryl Ranch in the past helping define long-range concept plans for the Ranch House pool area. Planning, design, permitting and bidding are expected to be completed next August with construction starting in September and continuing through May 2016.
