GH Phipps Construction Cos.
was selected by Colorado Col-
lege to renovate and expand Tutt
Library – part of the college’s
commitment to 100 percent car-
bon neutrality by 2020.
The modernization of the
building is designed to not only
adjust the library to the school’s
“Block Plan,” an academic
schedule that allows students
to plunge into a different subject
every 3 ½ weeks rather than
balancing several throughout a
semester, but also add sustain-
able features to the building.
The estimated $30 million
project will include adding
39,000 square feet to the library
and demolition of the 1980 Tutt
South addition. A 9,700-sf fourth
level also will be added to the
original library, which was con-
structed in 1962 and designed
by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill
of Chicago. The 63,000-sf reno-
vated library will house a new
Center for Immersive Learning
and Engaged Teaching.
The project will involve the
temporary relocation of the
current library, abatement and
inclusion of a geothermal sys-
temwithin the new landscaping.

of Los Angeles is the architect
on the project and is working
with consultants MASS Design
Group of Boston.
