U.S. Engineering Rocky Mountain Region teams worked on three of the projects ENR Mountain States recognized as “2019 Best Projects” in the Colorado/Wyoming/Dakotas category.
From ENR’s website: “A panel of 12 judges from all areas of the industry—architects, GCs, green consultants, virtual designers and engineers—selected winners and merit awards from the 156 total entries this year, by far the most in the 19-year history of the awards.”

The JBS Global Food Innovation Center is an addition to the south side of the existing Animal Science building for the College of Agricultural Sciences. The addition includes labs, offices, an auditorium, catering kitchen, and program spaces for teaching and research in meat science. The aim of the facility is to advance best practices in food safety, meat sciences, and animal handling and welfare.
The University of Northern Colorado Campus Commons
The University of Northern Colorado Campus Commons is a multi-purpose building housing administrative offices, student support services and a performance venue. This cornerstone building is a main hub for campus and community stakeholders.
The project included 24,000 sq ft of office space and conference rooms, a 5,972-sq-ft, 600-seat performance venue, a 400-seat multipurpose auditorium, rehearsal spaces, a 14,523-sq-ft open lobby, a 1,756-sq-ft art gallery and a student-run cafe with a full catering kitchen.

From Adolph & Peterson’s website: “The 56,450-sf expansion, designed by architect Hord Coplan Macht, provides a new middle and high school for the rural Wiggins community. The project includes minor renovations to the elementary school and existing weight room, as well as the event center, which connect to the new addition. Project highlights include an expanded parking area, a 250-seat auxiliary gym, a wrestling room, an agriculture education shop, a 350-seat theater and 18 new classrooms.
