APS’s Atrisco Elementary is a bilingual K-5 school tucked away in Albuquerque’s South Valley. Their existing campus had a need for classroom consolidation and collaborative learning spaces. These needs were met with a 39,990sf addition to their existing campus, which provided a modernized kitchen and cafeteria, while also creating space for 14 general classrooms, 3 special use classrooms, an art/music room, administrative suites and support offices.
The new design created an integrated learning environment by linking all classrooms, once separated, under one roof and by constructing large halls that can house groups of students to encourage collaboration, and also maintain access control. The new classrooms incorporate connecting double doors in order to accommodate team teaching. Other classroom features include cubbies, clerstory windows to boost daylight, tackable surfaces that double for acoustic attenuation, and a spectrum of vibrant accent walls.
The project also included extensive sitework comprised of demolition of non-operational outlier classrooms, relocation of utilities, and a new parking lot and drainage system. Exterior aesthetic improvements included a new synthetic turf field and updated landscaping.
This project was originally slated to achieve LEED Silver Certification, however, the efforts put forth by the design team and contractors elevated it to LEED Gold. This was done by incorporating sustainable design strategies including: high performing HVAC system, low flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, high performance glazing, increased acoustic attenuation, photo-voltaic energy production panels and increased building insulation. These strategies were combined with shading devices to maximize natural light, reduce electrical lighting, and reduce the cooling load on the building. Altogether, 90% of addition's space is filled with natural daylighting.

This intricate renovation tested the walls of time, as we completed an infrastructure upgrade within the confines of the 1960’s section of the Presbyterian Main Hospital. Floor by floor, we extracted existing HVAC ducts, plumbing pipes and electrical conduits and replaced them with modern alternatives. This upgrade also integrated the modernization of all four elevator shafts on each of the levels. The multi-phased project demanded constant coordination and careful shut-down scheduling between the construction team and owners. Special attention was paid to Interim Life Safety Measures and Infectious Disease Control due the sensitive nature working within a fully operational hospital. Additionally, we performed a complete removal and renovation of the 1B unit which included 15 patient rooms with med gas hook ups, private bathrooms and a central nurse station.

Albuquerque proudly welcomed Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, a much anticipated fine dining restaurant located in the Uptown area off Louisiana and Indian School.
This project began in a space that was previously occupied by three retailers and included a split story, open layout with a lower basement level and mezzanine. Enterprise Builders prepped the shell space and created a 10,000sf canvas that would greatly add to the local dining scene.
The blank space was built out to include a custom kitchen, elegant bar and unique dining area with custom woodwork, high end finishes and exquisite lighting fixtures- one of the most notable being a circular chandelier overhanging in the mezzanine with hundreds of perfectly placed dangling crystal lights. The interior design offers patrons a variety of different themes and custom 3D artwork that was hand sculpted during construction. There are wall hangings representative of New Mexico, mountainous color schemes, hand carved wood accents and segmented glass.
To update the exterior façade, the parapet was raised to make room for signage and a welcoming entryway. One Park Square is also decorated with a highly visible sign hanging from the top and lighting Uptown.
Ruth’s Chris distinctive design and upscale menu will surely attract locals and visitors alike, and offer a unique dining experience unlike anything in town. It is exquisitely different and nothing less than extraordinary.

The Medical Resort at Fiesta Park is a beautifully renovated 65,000 sf facility, which makes use of the original 1950’s vintage heritage of the building. The multi-million dollar redevelopment transformed the building, which had been re-purposed and remodeled several times since its original completion, by incorporating original characteristics with a modern touch. The contemporary design enhances the original brick walls and fireplaces to coincide with the stunning neutral tones, offering clients a resort-like stay. The fully revamped facility now boasts a coffee bar, multiple fitness/therapy areas, eat-in bistro restaurant and movie theatre, which are all provided within a stunning environment with 85 private patient rooms. Prior to the renovation, completed by Enterprise Builders Corporation and Cauwels & Stuve Construction & Design, the facility served as a nursing home. With many of the bedroom outlines already in place, the main structural improvements included enclosing outdoor patios to form group areas and creating a unifying interior design to conform to the New Mexico Department of Health’s Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) standards. Additionally, mechanical units and windows were replaced to increase efficiency and cut down on energy consumption. The exterior of the building received some sprucing up as a fresh coat of stucco was applied, and steel screens decorate the building while serving as blockage from the sun. The spectacular details of the job came together to embrace the building as it once was and to create a one-of-a-kind facility providing superior care to clients as they reside in a resort-like Skilled Nursing Facility. This is truly a “home away from home”.

The rapidly expanding Uptown retail district is now home to Total Wine & More. The repurposed building was once a lavish office space for Morgan Stanley Smith-Barney, which now resides in Two Park Square (and was proudly renovated by EBC in 2011). Now, the newly renovated superstore is 23,400 sf of pure “wine-bliss” with endless rows of wine, beers, spirits, cigars, accessories and more. The transformation began with major demolition of the existing office space, which consisted of an array of glass panels, wood accents and stone countertops. Structural changes to the existing masonry walls were needed to create a 24’ x 42’ delivery dock on the southwest end of the building and special traffic coordination was carefully pre-planned to account for the confined parking area. As the interior of the building took shape, the center remained an open market while the perimeter became home to several walk-in coolers, a cigar humidifier and a stunning wine tasting room. Only top-of-the-line finishes were used to decorate the store including custom shelving and display drawers, low V.O.C. flooring, vibrant floating signs with wood backing and decorative steel window coverings with grapevine cutouts. Ductwork was gently painted and left exposed for added depth to the building’s naturally tall ceilings. Total Wine & More is a fine example of a collaborative project in which the developer, architect and corporate firm were equally involved in the project execution resulting in a stunning store built on a foundation of trust.
