The Summit House Gets CDPHE Approval

Yet another important milestone at the Pikes Peak Summit Complex has been reached! The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment approved the localized reclaimed water treatment system for the Visitor’s Center. This is a key step in being able to use reclaimed water to flush toilets in the building, an important aspect of the sustainable design that has been the primary focus of the project that will save over 350,000 gallons of water per year over the former system! The only other entity to achieve this is Denver Water. Congrats to the hardworking design team!

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Colorado Ribbon Cutting

Hope has a new address! We were thrilled to celebrate with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Colorado at the ribbon cutting of their new facility in northern Colorado Springs. For over 32 years, the Ronald McDonald House has served families across southern Colorado and beyond with temporary housing where families could be near their critically ill child. At 25,000 square feet, the new House doubles the capacity of the former house and will be able to serve 650 families annually. RTA has been honored to work with this incredible organization as they begin the next chapter in their service to families in times of medical crisis. It truly is the “house that love built”.
