In honor of National Beer Day, we would like to give a shout out to Red River Brewing Company designed by RTA Principal Brian Calhoun and owned and operated by the Calhoun family. This interactive building is designed to give visitors a first-hand view of the brewing process with large windows looking in on the distillery process. Red River Brewing is offering takeout and delivery during the COVID-19 crisis.
Due to the events surrounding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the 2020 High School Architecture program. While we regret having to end the class early the students' safety is our top priority, and we hope the introduction to the profession of Architecture has given students a clearer vision of their career path. Thank you to our Class Champion and all the Group Leaders who work so hard to provide this great program. We’re looking forward to the Class of 2021!

Like many of you, we are staying connected through weekly online team meetings. Although it wasn’t how we anticipated celebrating his career, we recently enjoyed a rousing and heartfelt virtual ”tip-of-the-hat” for retiring Principal John Hoelscher, AIA. John has created a lasting design and practice legacy at RTA and numerous friendships among our partners and clients. Join us in wishing John a very happy retirement!
While we weren’t able to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new Newton Middle School in person, we’re certainly sending out lots of virtual cheers! Congratulations to Littleton Public Schools on this important milestone!

To RTA Clients and Industry Partners:
Like you, we are experiencing the impacts of the COVID-19 virus and are taking action. Our goals are to keep all of us at RTA and our families safe and healthy, take care of our clients and business partners and their interests, act responsibly as citizens of our community, and keep our business strong and productive so that we can continue to serve our clients. To that end, as of March 16th, we will be working remotely to the greatest extent possible.
We have been proactive and have taken steps over the last several days to help ensure that we continue to serve our clients with minimal disruption, including equipping all employees with the hardware and software needed to work from home. Our phone system is set up to route calls to each individual. Travel is to being minimized, and all of us will use teleconferencing in place of face-to-face meetings as much as possible. We appreciate your patience as we work through this difficult time together. If you have any questions, please email or call the Principal or Project Manager you customarily work with.
We had a great evening at Craig Hospital’s annual PUSH fundraiser gala! This year’s event raised more than $2 million for Craig Hospital’s programs, spinal cord and brain injury research, and the Patient Assistance Fund which provides equipment and emergency assistance to patients in need.
