Winter Outdoor Design Workshop Design Concepts

The Outdoor Winter Design Workshop took place October 19, and brought together the American Council of Engineering Companies of Colorado (ACEC), the American Institute of Architects Colorado (AIA), the Associated General Contractors of Colorado (AGC), other design and construction professionals, public health officials, representatives from local fire departments, building officials, restaurateurs, and more to create feasible ideas for outdoor dining concepts through Colorado’s cold-weather months. Teams were assigned a specific outdoor space type and geography. They were asked to consider safety, cost, permitting, regulations, ease of implementation, and the comfort of the guest as they create their concepts. These are the teams’ final concepts.

The concepts shown here are for inspiration only. They are not intended to be final designs or plans for construction. All construction projects should be approved by local building and fire code officials and obtain proper permitting, and if required, final designs for build should be completed by licensed professionals.
