I wonder what’s going on under that big blue tarp on Washington Ave… More to share soon!

Chelsea Rooney promoted to Associate

Anderson Hallas Architects is pleased to announce the promotion of Chelsea Rooney, AIA, to Associate.

Chelsea joined the Anderson Hallas team in 2020 and has demonstrated outstanding design, leadership, and dedication to her projects. Her recent work has included three historic rehabilitation projects for the National Park Service – the Charles Young House at Buffalo Soldiers National Monument, the Painted Desert Community Complex at Petrified Forest National Park, and the Leeper House at Chickasaw National Recreation Area.

He has a Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Colorado at Boulder and over 14 years of professional experience.

Principal Wells Squier, AIA, takes the helm as President of AIA Colorado

Wells Squier, AIA, Principal of Anderson Hallas has been named this year’s President of AIA Colorado Board of Directors! We look forward to all you and the Board will accomplish in the coming year.

From AIA Colorado’s December 8, 2021 Press Release:

“Colorado continues to experience unprecedented growth,” said 2022 AIA Colorado President Wells Squier, AIA. “While this presents great opportunities for architects and allied professions, it has never been more important for our community to lead strongly and with integrity.”

“Through continued volunteer engagement, virtual platforms that expanded the reach of program offerings, and creative adaptations of award events and the Practice+Design Conference, our organization and community have thrived through these otherwise challenging times,” said Squier. “Although uncertainty remains, my hope for the coming year is that we’ll have the opportunity to safely reconvene in person, while still leveraging virtual platforms to maintain robust participation and engagement of members, all the while continuing to adhere to the renewed imperatives and guiding principles we are committed to advance. We will move forward with purpose, never satisfied with the status quo.”
