FBT Breaks Ground on Multiple Projects

Taos Pueblo, NM | Colorado Springs, CO | Dallas, TX

The last couple of weeks have been filled with elation, gratitude and excitement as FBT Architects celebrate three groundbreaking ceremonies for projects across the region. These projects, spanning multiple offices and studios, include a wellness center for Taos Pueblo, a middle school for Atlas Prep in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and a meeting house for The Twelfth Step Ministry in Dallas, Texas. After dedicating countless hours developing and designing new spaces, it is incredibly rewarding for FBT Architects to gather alongside leadership, colleagues, and community members to commemorate progress and look to the future.


Taos Pueblo Wellness Center

Taos Pueblo, NM

On Tuesday, April 23, Taos Pueblo broke ground for a new multi-use development which will include many new governmental and community buildings including a wellness center designed by FBT Architects. The new, state-of-the-art wellness center for the Taos Pueblo will include fitness and recreation components with the goal of enhancing Taos Pueblo’s health and well-being for generations to come. The architectural design and functional amenities are creatively woven into the Pueblo’s cultural fabric, making the wellness center the heart of the community. The center will serve the tribal community with a modern, safe and welcoming environment for indoor and outdoor recreation, improving long-term multi-generational health and new recreational opportunities on Tribal land.

Atlas Middle School

Colorado Springs, CO

On Friday, April 26, the new 44,056 sf, two-story addition at Atlas Middle School broke ground. This new addition to the existing charter middle school was funded through the BEST grant program and is FBT Architects’ second collaboration with Atlas Preparatory School. The addition will include a new classroom wing with 25 classrooms, administrative space, cafeteria, gym and kitchen. Key goals for the project include safety/security, developing a cohesive campus identity and ensuring school operations are not impacted during construction. The new spaces will accommodate the ever-growing student population on campus and equip students and teachers with a modern, inspiring learning environment.


Twelfth Step Ministries Meeting House

Dallas, TX

The Twelfth Step Ministry at The Center for Spiritual Development provides hope, help and support to the Recovery Community of North Texas in a safe, inclusive environment. This non-profit organization provides education and training and hosts over 70 meetings per week to reach as many people as possible, providing a place where people can find a friend, a sponsor or to just a place that reminds them of home. Their new meeting and support center, designed by FBT Architects, broke ground on Friday, April 12. The new building will be situated on over two acres of heavily treed property along a creek in North Dallas. The facility includes indoor and outdoor meeting space, spiritual areas and support spaces. A public gathering lounge, serenity rooms and a renewal garden offer settings for both group activities and private reflection. The groundbreaking marks an exciting next step for the non-profit as they work to improve lives in Northern Texas.
