Spaces for Learning...

The built environment should enhance our experiences, facilitate our purpose, and inspire us.  This is especially true on college campuses were technology, integrated learning programs and methodologies are changing at an ever-increasing pace.  As universities across the country vie for both students and educators, Iron Horse is developing creative, adaptable, sustainable solutions to facilitate learning and inspire generations of students in a dynamic and complex social, economic, and political environment.  We start by listening to the desires of our clients, their faculty, students, and donors .

 CU Boulder - Aerospace Engineering Center  Iron Horse worked closely with the design team verifying the program with the user’s requirements, and developing the connections between technical spaces and wet labs within the facility. The firm then collaborated with the design team and engineers to accommodate the needs of the faculty and students within the new facility. The new facility is approximately 83,500 SF with approximately 9,000 SF of wet lab and specialized research utilities. Role: Lab Consultant to HCM

 Colorado School of Mines - Berthoud Hall Lab 406 Renovation  The Berthoud Hall Lab 406 renovation is a 1,600 SF lab located on the Colorado School of Mine’s campus in Golden, CO. The lab serves as research space for three faculty members and a student instruction area. Iron Horse was brought in to complete a feasibility study to ensure that the work needing to take place aligned with the budget of the project and then developed a plan around that criteria. The existing lab was no longer serving the growing needs of the researchers so improvements to the existing facility were made to accommodate the new equipment and procedures being used. Role: Architect of Record

 CU Boulder - Idea Forge  Iron Horse designed the renovation of approximately 36,000 SF of the existing Fleming Law Building at the University of Colorado for use as the Idea Forge, an active learning and collaboration space for undergraduate engineering students. This space was most recently used as library stacks, so the HVAC and electrical systems required retrofits in order to support engineering studio spaces for more than two hundred students. Role: Architect of Record
