ACE “Silver” Best Building Project $40-$70 Million, University of Colorado Colorado Springs Ent Center for the Arts 

Prominently visible from the south corridor of I25, the 92,000 SF University of Colorado Colorado Springs’ (UCCS) Ent Center for the Arts is impossible to miss. Drawing you in and welcoming engagement, the Ent Center features sleek curves on the outside and state-of-the-art performance venues on the inside. This facility combines academic and performance spaces and brings together various groups that had previously been scattered. 

With challenges, comes true growth. While the general contractor, the project owner, the design firm and the architect entered into this process with a deep respect for each other’s talents and capabilities, the real galvanizing moment was when they became united through a shared struggle. That moment was when the team realized that the cost model was broken. The model had been based off one venue under one roof, instead of 5 venues under 1 roof. The team began the Target Value Design process and looked at many creative options including completing a significant skin study pricing exercise to find the optimum solution, one that created a standout building for the campus while meeting the budget goals. Throughout this process the team kept the primary goal in mind – world class acoustical spaces.

The UCCS project manager and General Contracting project manager will walk PMI members through the facility as they narrate several aspects of the project focusing on the some of constraints and risks that were revealed during execution and how all of the stakeholders came together to overcome those hurdles. 

Learning objectives:  Risk identification and planning; Effective cost management; Effective stakeholder management
