Denver, CO (September 18, 2012) – Denver-based SLATERPAULL Architects announces that it was selected by Aims Community College to design a new $8.0 million facility focused on energy technologies and agriculture programs at its Fort Lupton campus. The 27,500-square-foot building, currently in design by SLATERPAULL, is expected to be completed in time for the 2013 academic year.
The facility will house the school’s new associate degree programs in agribusiness, agriculture and oil and gas. In addition to flexible classrooms, the plan calls for specific shop spaces, a science lab, student lounge space and faculty office space as needed to support the college.
"This is a very fast moving project and we are excited to be working with such a dedicated and enthusiastic group at Amis Community College and the city of Fort Lupton. Together, we will design exceptional spaces for teaching and learning on the Fort Lupton campus,” said Jennifer Cordes, principal, SLATERPAULL Architects. “Since we are building a new building and renovating the existing building, the Fort Lupton Campus will feel brand new in 2013."
