We are committed to investing our time and energy and support the environment we work in and call home. Forum Phi strives to set an example of unparalleled community stewardship.
PRO BONO WORK
Alameda Point Collaborative
The Alameda Point Collaborative is a supportive housing program for homeless families within the decommissioned Alameda Naval Air Station. The goal of this project was to develop a master plan and design a community room to be utilized as a positive place for youth to congregate. In partnership with APC Forum Phi redesigned the existing clinical space to be a functional, contemporary, and sustainable youth career center.
Aspen Ski & Snowboard Club
Forum Phi worked with AVSC to overcome fixed limitations of the existing space that created difficulties. Forum Phi reconfigured the interiors of Aspen Ski & Snowboard Club's current office to double the amount of space to facilitate growth and increase the impact the organization has on local youth.
Basalt Master Plan
By engaging with the community in an interactive effort, Forum Phi assisted the town of Basalt with a master planning service to set a vision for the town. The plan is a principal guiding document in the development review process for the town. Forum Phi created three options while collaborating with the Basalt community to gain crucial data allowing Forum Phi to prioritize and plan the future of the town. This process helped create a collective vision for the Basalt community.
Snowmass Village, CO
A growing nonprofit facing severe space constraints without funding, Challenge Aspen sought a renovation to expand the parameters of their current space. Forum Phi doubled the size of the space the staff could utilize, while installing a handicapped lift with direct mountain access. With the help of Forum Phi, Challenge Aspen's updated and efficient space is better equipped to serve our community and those in need.
Coastal Repertory Theater
Half Moon Bay, CA
Forum Phi designed the renovation of a community theatre located in a re-purposed industrial building. After spearheading a successful fundraising campaign to cover the remodeling costs, Forum Phi redesigned dressing rooms, restrooms, theatre seating, and the stage.
Aspen Historical Society
The focus of the Aspen Historical Society is to enrich the community through preserving and communicating Aspen’s remarkable history. Forum Phi donated services to assist them with the design of a climate controlled, fire proof space where Aspen Historical Society can store and protect historical documents and the history of our community.
Aspen Center of Environmental Studies
Aspen Historical Society approached Forum Phi with the challenge of reviving the bird-watching programs for the children. Forum Phi innovatively used the surrounding trees to create a series of platform tree houses allowing the children to have a “bird’s eye view”. Forum Phi also donated services for a custom treehouse. Forum Phi is looking forward to future opportunities to help this nonprofit expand and increase environmental awareness in our community and its future leaders.
