We are a 50-person architectural firm located in Denver, Colorado. For nearly 40 years we have provided a full range of services including the planning, programming, and design of buildings for colleges, universities, schools, libraries, justice facilities, office buildings, cultural venues, and housing. We have twice been awarded the American Institute of Architects' Firm Award for "a distinguished body of work" and numerous local, regional and national design awards.

We believe architecture has the power to heighten human well-being and illuminate our cultural values. We are driven by a standard of excellence which provides the highest level of ethics and professionalism to our clients. We embrace thoughtful and responsible design in all aspects of our lives and we constantly strive to create buildings of architectural significance and responsibility.

Our work is developed within a collaborative atmosphere which cultivates research, analysis, and deliberation into judicious decision-making at all levels. Vigorous exploration of client goals is coupled with a detailed examination of their functional needs. This understanding is artfully transformed into three-dimensional space which inspires the daily life within the building. Physical patterns and the cultural fabric of each place are carefully studied to appropriately respond to each site's unique physical and social context. Materials and systems are selected which respect and sustain our planet and the thoughtful expression of building craft and technology are economically integrated to bring the defining statement of character and identity for each of our clients.

The new building will be developed as a leading edge STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education facility to foster a teaching and learning environment that will invigorate the attraction of students to the STEM fields, cultivate interest and success within the STEM disciplines, as well as enrich students' experience of the scientific and computational processes, discovery and collaborative learning.

Included in the new facility will be class laboratories to serve the lower division courses within Life Sciences, Chemistry, Physics & Astronomy, Mathematics, Computer Science, Geology and a limited number of Agriculture courses. The planning for the facility has focused on developing a STEM building that will meet the immediate facility needs while maintaining flexibility so that the facility will serve the University well into the very distant future.
