RTA Critical Care Unit Design

Recently one of RTA's Critical Care Unit designs was included in a submittal for an CCU Citation Award for Best CCU Design of the year.

Centura Health Colorado chose RTA to design the Critical Care Unit at Parker Adventist Hospital in Parker, Colorado. The newly completed CCU is a stand-out project because it demonstrates unique design goals and criteria.

GOAL: The construction of a Critical Care Unit using proven evidence based design concepts that integrate the organization's core values: compassion, respect, integrity, spirituality, stewardship, imagination, and excellence.

The Parker CCU project also demonstrates the following criteria:

  • Commitment to creating a healing environment
  • Commitment to promoting safety and security
  • Commitment to efficiency
  • Attention to innovative, unique aesthetic and creative design features

"The Story of University Village Colorado" describes an Urban Renewal success story

University Village - Veda Salon

University Village Colorado is a 70 acre success story. Situated near the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs campus, the site was formerly a mish-mash of properties which had become a liability to the urban landscape. Through the efforts of the Urban Renewal Authority the area was revitalized as an economic development tool.

This mini-documentary tells the story of dirt-movers, burning buildings, design inspritation and construction, all through the eyes of all the collaborating experts.

Watch for the RTA Architects: Site plans shown for UVC were orignally drawn by RTA Principal, Perry Lewis. And Associate Principal, Doug Abernethy, comments on the design process ... and ice cream!
