Feasibility Study + Design
In 2002, Colorado College retained Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture to prepare a long range development plan for campus athletics and recreation.
The only four-year liberal arts college between the Mississippi and the West Coast, Colorado College has a number of 30-year-old facilities that have not kept up with the needs of modern athletes, including the school’s nationally ranked Division I hockey team.
Phase 1 of the study, completed in the spring of 2003, assessed varsity athletic, intramural, student and staff recreation needs, comparing these against a survey of existing athletic facilities and fields on campus. Our analysis also included review of NCAA criteria, gender equity and accessibility issues. The result was a recommendation to proceed with one of five alternatives to construct new athletic, training and recreation facilities.
