Castle Rock, Colo. – Despite a year marked by economic downturns and industry interruptions, one local architecture firm continued its massive growth, even through a challenging pandemic year in 2020.

Hollis + Miller Architects, an integrated education-based architecture firm located in Castle Rock, continues to build momentum since its opening in 2015: Last year the firm added seven new team members (growing from 10 to 17) and worked on 108 projects (as compared to 38 in 2019, an increase of 184%).

The firm also forged new partnerships with area public school districts, including Denver Public Schools, Aurora Public Schools and Jeffco Public Schools, and helped area charter schools with new facilities and projects, including Colorado SKIES Academy, Colorado Military Academy and Compass Montessori School.

“We feel privileged to work with talented educators and administrators on so many Colorado-based school projects,” said Chris Heinz, partner at Hollis + Miller. “The pandemic may have disrupted the educational landscape for us all, but we’re excited to continue to work with schools on what’s next—so we can truly build the future of learning for our local students.”

To enhance its full-service, integrated approach, the firm also expanded its structural engineering capabilities, adding three new engineers to the Castle Rock team in the last year.

“This breadth of structural engineering experience is certainly unique in Colorado, but we know this level of expertise only makes us a more valuable partner for our local schools,” said David Krell, senior structural engineer at Hollis + Miller. “I’m excited about the talented team we’ve brought on board, and proud of the commitment this firm has made to the region.”
