Fort Lewis College | School of Business and School of Education Building

  • $7.8M
  • 53,000 SF
  • 2000

The School of Business and the School of Education are currently the only two Professional Programs on campus at Fort Lewis College, and a need was recognized to expand the instructional space provided for these programs. In addition, there would be additional general classroom space needed on campus once the existing Hesperus Hall (the current home of the schools of Business and Education) was demolished.

The new Classroom Building is intended to serve both these functions, providing a central grouping of faculty offices and classrooms for the Schools of Business and Education, and to provide additional general purpose classrooms for campus use.

The facility houses state of the art teaching classrooms, faculty and staff offices, and general computer laboratories, to be used by the entire campus. The building occupies a very significant and prominent site on the campus, thus dictating the importance of the master plan for this and later phases of construction.

Campus circulation, both pedestrian and vehicular, are affected by and informed by the building’s placement. Current and future utility needs are factored into the infrastructure design.

We are a 50-person architectural firm located in Denver, Colorado. For over 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 “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.
