Red Hawk Ridge Elementary

  • Health and learning — We took particular care in expanding and enhancing opportunities for education and physical fitness through outdoor play areas and gathering spaces
  • Neighborhood Culture — We understand the importance of integration, so our goal was to improve the playground for both students and the surrounding neighborhood

Consilium Design partnered with Metropolitan School District leadership in a design response that meets the needs of a rapidly expanding school by making improvements to the existing outdoor play area on the campus.

This included the addition of synthetic turf to replace highly impacted and unmanageable play areas, improvements to accessibility, and the implementation of several shade structures for outdoor learning activities, play, and major outdoor school events.

Red Hawk Ridge Elementary is a successful school within the Cherry Creek School District.

Irish Miner’s Memorial

Irish Miner's Memorial



Irish Miner’s Memorial

In 2019, Consilium Design was invited to enter a design competition sponsored by the Irish Network Colorado, INCO for the memorial of an unmarked grave of Irish miners that had worked in the mines found in Leadville, CO.  Shortly after winning the competition, Consilium Design then proceeded to refine the competition design; work closely with the centerpiece sculptor from Ireland; work with local friends of the project; assist with fund raising efforts; estimate costs, solicit bids, and prepare construction documents.

We are proud to announce that Consilium Design has been providing construction administration services for the construction of the memorial and it plans to be installed by the fall of 2022.  It has been an honor to be part of this amazing project and to help memorize these Irish miners.
