Charles Cunniffe Architects & Mountain Builders Recognized

Charles Cunniffe Architects and Mountain Builders Inc. were recognized by Housing Colorado for their design & build efforts in the Gold Run affordable housing project in Telluride, Colorado. Established in 1990, the Eagle Award has come to represent one of the highest achievements within the Colorado housing community. This prestigious award celebrates the extraordinary accomplishments and outstanding leadership in housing and support services.

The award was presented to Telluride Mayor Stu Fraser, San Miguel Council Commissioner Elaine Fischer and San Miguel Regional Housing Authority Executive Director Shirley Diaz last week during the Housing Colorado Now! conference in Vail.

“I was thrilled,” Fischer said. “I feel like we absolutely deserve it because it’s a wonderful project … this is once again that feeling of ‘ahh, this is a great asset for the community and we’re going to make people so happy.’”

Mark Carlson with Mountain Builders based in Telluride, used modular construction to build the six units which were a combo of single family homes and duplexes. Design elements included large windows to encompass the views, decks, ample storage and garages…all huge attributes when it comes to affordable housing projects.
