Pikes Peak | CO
America’s Mountain is a beloved landmark and tourist destination for people locally and from around the world. The harsh and high altitude conditions at the Peak have resulted in a deteriorated summit complex. To re-envision the site, the design team for the new Pikes Peak Summit Complex is intentionally creating a purposeful journey for the visitor, from the first moments of arrival to the pinnacle overlooks, which capture views that inspired the anthem "America the Beautiful" by Katharine Lee Bates.

Dinosaur National Monument | UT
At Dinosaur National Monument, the historic Quarry Visitor Center, built over and around one of the best collections of Jurassic dinosaur fossils in the world was closed due to significant life, health, and safety issues. Our team was brought on board to help lead the park staff through a series of design approaches for this most sensitive of sites, help to conceive the necessary changes in program and function, and assist in defining the character of the project as a whole.
Gateway National Recreation Area | NJ
Eileen worked with NPS to complete preliminary, schematic design, and construction documents for new maintenance facilities at both Sandy Hook and Staten Island Units within the Gateway National Recreation Area. The team evaluated all of the existing maintenance facilities on both units and reviewed their damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. The ultimate goal of these projects was to relocate all maintenance facilities to sustainable and resilient locations within their units to ensure that the facilities remain in full operational capacity in the event of another natural disaster.
