THK Associates was honored with a 2016 American Society of Landscape Architects Colorado Chapter (ASLA Colorado) Merit Award in the Flood Restoration category for their revegetation and restoration work on Piney Creek.
The Colorado Lottery Starburst Community Awards recognizes excellence in the use of Lottery proceeds in community projects implemented to enhance a community’s environment. In October of 2016, this award was bestowed to the City of Colorado Springs for their work on the environmental playground at America the Beautiful. From the Colorado Lottery News page on their website, the environmental playground is touted as a “new addition to the park [that] will continue to showcase Colorado’s beauty." This playground does not build a predetermined experience but provides the building block for an adventure! Every trip to the park is a new and exciting experience.
THK Associates, Inc. has been involved with the successful design and installation of a fish passage structure located in the City of Fountain, Colorado.The existing diversion structure was retro-fitted to allow the migration of high plains fish species throughout Fountain Creek, with specific consideration given to the threatened Arkansas Darter and a species of concern, the Flathead Chub. The fish passage structure has been installed and is a great success. The Arkansas Darter and Flathead Chub now have free access to Fountain Creek and are no longer a free meal!
