The University of Colorado, Boulder Campus, has been a client of Civitas since 1985. During this period Civitas has developed master plans for the Fisher Field Complex, the Football Stadium/Fieldhouse complex, the Recreation Center, the Norlin Quadrangle, and has implemented over twenty site spaces, gathering areas, courtyards, quadrangles, pathways and bikeways.

The relationship between Civitas and CU began when Hideo Sasaki chaired the Design Review Board. In the early years Civitas with the DRB and Campus Facilities architects created a series of visions for redevelopment of the campus, the renewal of campus landscapes, the organization of parking, the removal of cars, and the creation of over a dozen sites for new buildings.

As a result of this legacy partnership the campus has grown in size, density and quality. It is now more sustainable as Civitas has reduced water usage, it is more walkable as cars have been replaced by bike and pedestrian ways, and it is more attractive and livable due to a new hierarchy of spaces and places to gather, study and meet outdoors. Civitas’ total built work on campus exceeds $ 50 million in total value for the landscape components alone.

As a result of the years of successful collaboration Civitas has performed master plans and built works on each campus of the University including Pueblo, Colorado Springs, and Downtown Denver.
