The Eagle County Housing Department and Augustana Care Corporation are announcing the selection of the Nelson-Tremain Partnership in association with Snowdon & Hopkins Architects to design a senior care facility in the Town of Eagle. The firms were selected through a competitive process in which 17 architectural offices submitted applications for the project.

Eagle County, in partnership with Augustana Care, is planning to construct a senior facility on the county’s former road and bridge property and the former USFS horse pasture parcel in west Eagle. County staff and Augustana Care are currently hosting focus groups with stakeholders and interested citizens to help shape plans for the facility. Housing Director Jill Klosterman says the team is very excited to take the next step in the process of bringing senior care to Eagle County. “The firms selected were the most qualified and will provide the best value for the unique opportunities at the location for the proposed facility,” said Klosterman.

Snowdon & Hopkins Architects have been in business in Eagle County since 1977 and have designed award-winning public buildings such as the Vail Public Library and the Eagle Library. They will be collaborating with the Nelson-Tremain Partnership, which is a specialized architectural and consulting practice from Minnesota. In business since 1980, they have served clients on projects that address the full spectrum of housing and health care for aging. They have designed licensed facilities in Colorado as well as other states.

A selection committee made up of Augustana Care and county staff reviewed the applications and interviewed four finalists. For more information, contact Yuri Kostick in the county’s Housing Department at 970-328-8731.
