we exist to


We use innovative design strategies to elevate and respond to the voices of underserved communities. We co-create programs, tools and policy recommendations to mitigate involuntary displacement and ensure socially equitable growth.


We work to identify gaps in services that can be solved through architecture & design. We conduct needs assessments with community leaders, members and organizations in order to develop a community-based design process to determine creative planning solutions.


We increase affordable opportunities for people of all backgrounds. We are streamlining the development process by: identifying land opportunities, solidifying partnerships, leveraging non-traditional capital, and scaling community benefit throughout the state.

“Being able to use funding on our youth and programming instead of paying for office/event space rental was so important to ensuring our focus is on our community.”

“The team at BUILD offers outstanding service and support. Everyone has truly been so kind and has offered help in areas we may not have known we needed at times, even if it was just fellowship over the BUILD breakfast days.”

“Though we are a small team, being at BUILD alongside the 10+ other organizations, it feels like a big family, all who are striving to make Colorado better.”


“BUILD allowed us to have a firm landing space in which to grow. The space validated our presence in the community, and for that, we are appreciative.”
