ACE Students Experience Design Life at RTA

RTA was pleased to have Amina and Sophia, two high school students from D-11 Palmer high school involved in the ACE Mentor Program of Colorado, in our office to experience firsthand what we do day to day. The two were very busy during their two-week internship! They went on multiple site visits, attended a ribbon cutting, modeled in project photography, developed concepts and study models, and learned how to fly the drone. Wow!

Architectural Interns Kylie Engel and Jordan Pollart and Principals Doug Abernethy and Kevin Gould teamed up with Denver University MBA students to compete in the National Association for Industrial and Office Parks Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge.
