National Park Service – Curecanti Elk Creek Visitor Center

Curecanti National Recreation Area is a popular destination for many outdoor recreation activities, consisting of recreational facilities and three reservoirs Blue Mesa, Morrow Point, and Crystal. The Park’s Visitor Center, Elk Creek, is located 16 miles west of Gunnison, Colorado. It was designed in 1965 by architect Cecil Doty during the National Park Service Mission 66 era.  The historic Visitor Center underwent rehabilitation of the mechanical and electrical systems, lighting fixtures, restrooms, plumbing fixtures, exterior windows and doors, and interior finishes to address accessibility and safety. 360 Engineering worked with Anderson Hallas Architects and the A/E design team to provide mechanical and plumbing engineering services, bringing Elk Creek up to date.
