Jones and Palmer Halls Ribbon Cutting

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating the ribbon cutting for TWO completed projects on one very special campus. The Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind provides specialized education services and we are honored to have a role in their growing campus. At more than 12,000 SF, Jones Hall houses the Colorado Instructional Materials Center as well as VIP rooms for campus guests and a low vision clinic. In addition, a full renovation of the 15,000+ SF Palmer Hall was completed and hosts CSDB's "Bridges to Life" program which serves students between the ages of 18 and 21 and seeks to bridge the gap between high school and the real world, emphasizing education, employment, and independence. Congratulations CSDB!

We are pleased to announce that RTA has been selected to lead the design of the new Southern Colorado Ronald McDonald House which will be located on the corner of North Union Blvd. and Royal Pine Dr. in northern Colorado Springs on the same medical campus as the new Children’s Hospital Colorado, Colorado Springs and University of Colorado Health (UCH) Memorial Hospital North. The new Ronald McDonald House will initially be able to accommodate 20 families with the ability to expand to 30 families.

The need for a larger Ronald McDonald House reflects the growing pediatric and neonatal intensive care unit services in Colorado Springs. The new Southern Colorado Ronald McDonald House is anticipated to be approximately 25,000 square feet with 20 family suites, a manager suite, two full kitchens and dining room, a children’s play area, a teen room, a family room, and numerous support spaces. Outdoor amenities include respite areas, walking paths, a children’s play area, a half-basketball court, and a patio with outdoor seating and a barbeque grill.

Construction is anticipated to begin in July 2018, with completion early in the second quarter of 2019. Read the full press release here.
