Saint Thomas More Hospital breaks ground in Canon City
St. Thomas More hospital broke ground on Tuesday August 16th to make room for the 40,000 square-foot addition. The three-story facility, designed by RTA Architects, is located on the existing hospital campus and connected to the existing physical therapy building. It is expected to cost between $4 million and $5 million. The state-of-the-art building is expected to be open and ready to receive patients in the fall of 2017.
RTA noted in Architectural Record for use of energy efficient windows at St. Thomas More Hospital
As noted in the Architectural Record, RTA makes simple choices which bring energy efficiency to our clients. At St. Thomas More Hospital in Canon City, Colorado, RTA architects made use of a new window glaze technology to create energy savings. RTA architect Michael Malloy explained that during the shop drawing phase of the project, the RTA team identified a higher performing glazing product which would allow in more light and keep out more heat. The substitution of a more thermally efficient glazing system came at no extra cost to the owner.
