Larimer County Fairgrounds, “The Ranch,” consists of six separate buildings including a multi-purpose entertaining area for hockey and rodeos, two animal pavilions for youth 4-H clubs, an indoor arena, an exhibition building and a maintenance facility. U.S. Engineering worked closely with the design team to help establish early design development drawings to fit within the owner’s budget.  The events center took on many different faces during the initial design meeting before becoming the region’s largest sports complex.  This events center has the capability of holding all indoor sports venues as well as concerts and large meeting events.
