[au]workshop architects+urbanists continues growth Formed eight months ago, [au]workshop architects+urbanists is exceeding initial expectations and has hired four additional professionals while continuing to pursue talented staff to help design a growing portfolio of projects in northern Colorado, Denver, New Mexico, California and internationally.

New employees, in order of hire, include Levi Wall, Spencer Lindstrom, Arlo Schumann; and architect Brian Betsill.

Wall, a project designer, received his Master of Architecture degree from Kansas State University in the spring of 2012. His interests include agriculture, urbanism, and sustainability in self-generated, self-sustaining communities.  

Lindstrom, an architectural intern, grew up in Northern Colorado and graduated first in his class at the University of Colorado in 2011.  He will complete his Master of Architecture degree at Rice University in Houston in December.

Schumann, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP, has over 12 years of previous professional experience on a variety of project types including single family residential, multi-family housing, commercial, and education. Arlo currently sits on the AIA Colorado North Chapter Board of Directors. In 2009 he received the AIA Colorado North Presidents Award for Service, and in 2010 received the AIA Colorado North Chapter Associate of the Year Award.

Associate Brian Betsill, AIA, LEED AP is a project manager with more than eight years of experience on academic, civic, and commercial projects. With his previous firm, he was the project architect for the Rialto Theater Center in downtown Loveland, Colorado, which was named the 2012 Honor Award winner by the Colorado North Chapter of The American Institute of Architects (AIA).  His most recent project, also with his previous firm, was the brew house and tasting room expansion at Odell Brewing in Fort Collins.

[au]workshop is thrilled to add these dedicated and talented architects and designers to our rapidly growing  team. Our initial hope was to double in size both this year and next and we have nearly accomplished both those targets in eight months thanks in part to the rebounding economy, In fact, we are still looking to hire additional qualified recent graduates.

 We are building a far-reaching Fort Collins based practice and collaborative team framework capable of solving architecture and urban design problems cost effectively and with design integrity.   The folks we’ve been lucky enough to hire put us squarely on that path.

About [auworkshop}:  Formed in 2013 with a focus on quality, authentic architecture and catalytic urban, civic and commercial projects that sustainably invigorate streets, neighborhoods and cities,  [au]workshop’s current design portfolio ranges in scale from Block One, a new downtown Fort Collins mixed-use headquarters for Encompass Technologies just under construction, to multi-million square foot urban mixed-use projects in design or under construction in Thailand.
