PCC Academic Facility
Location: Pueblo, CO
Owner: Pueblo Community College
Description: This successful project was the end result of a team design process that concentrated on providing state-of-the art classrooms & computerized learning resource space. This 112,000 sf facility was designed to fit comfortably into the surrounding residential neighborhood and it does so with a style that is pleasantly related to the tile-roofed “Southwest Mission” feeling of the 58 year-old campus. The facility includes tiered classrooms, small seminar rooms, administrative offices, faculty offices, student/faculty lounge, full library, video media production studio, outdoor amphitheater and indoor stage/platform area. Total project included two parking lots and extensive landscaping and irrigation. This project was the product of the team association of HGF Architects and Manning/Knapp Architects of Boulder, Colorado. HGF Architects, Inc.’s participation was in the schematic exterior design, design detailing, design development of exterior elevations and wall sections including special brick details, design development of construction systems, cost estimating, and all contract administration during construction.
