University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Gallogly Events Center

Colorado Springs, CO

Project Description

The Gallogly Event Center is not only an expansion for the athletics program of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, but is also an important venue for academic, student life and cultural programs for the university and the city. The facility seats 1,200 for intercollegiate athletics and 1,600 for larger gatherings, such as concerts, convocation and lectures.

Tucked into the side of the mountain, the 27,000-square-foot project is located between the existing University Center and Dwire Hall. The LEED Gold certified center provides a comfortable transition between the existing buildings with generous transparency achieved by means of curtain wall glazing. The curtain wall also activates the new south entry, as it provides an upper level concourse sheathed in glass, metal panel, and brick, capturing views to Pikes Peak to the northwest and the Broadmoor Hotel to the southeast.
