Vail architects provide a variety of services to clients, from complete designs to renovations on residential and commercial property. Another part of the field that Vail architects have entered is working with organizations, providing construction, labor and materials that are in need for repairs, remodeling, or renovations.
A successful project involved the Eagle River Presbyterian Church. Renovations and additions were provided through the efforts of TAB Associates, Inc.
The construction and upgrades provided by TAB were designed to increase floorspace and update specific church areas. Changes included expanding the sanctuary, upgrading classrooms and office space and designing a new fellowship hall to include a larger kitchen. The fellowship hall and sanctuary have views of the Eagle River from the newly installed patio.
The addition of 11,000 square feet allows the church to expand and welcome new church members, provide additional room for Sunday services, and allows them to be available to serve as a venue for events such as weddings, christenings and group meetings. The Eagle River Presbyterian Church also serves as an office and home for Habitat for Humanity for Eagle County.
With foresight, vision and the client’s specific wants, needs and goals always in sight, TAB Associates, Inc. leads the way in design services that produce positive results for its clients and the community.

At TAB Associates, our Colorado architects don’t just provide people with the plans for the home of their dreams, we offer institutional dream projects, too.
One of our current projects we’re working on is the Avery Parsons Elementary School addition. This school, located in Buena Vista, is adding on a wing for pre-kindergarten through second grade. This will replace the pre-kindergarten’s separate building.
One of the best parts is that though the design and features of the 17,800 square-foot addition will be similar to the 1997 structure, the day-lighting scheme will be different. This a great enhancement over the current structure, which is subtle enough so that it flows well with what is already standing. The teachers should not even need the electric lighting in their classrooms which will be automatically adjusted by daylight sensors.
Additionally, we will be adding a bit of site work, designing and implementing a new playground and pre-kindergarten playground. Possible additional funding may be provided by Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO).
If you’ve got a project you’d like to see come true, our Colorado architects can help with every step of the process. Please contact us at 970-766-1470.
Architects in Vail Valley do their part in serving the community and TAB Associates, Inc. is no exception. Founder and President of TAB Associates, Tab Bonidy, is a perfect example of someone who gives back to the community by providing monetary contributions, time and services to important educational and environmental projects.
Tab has contributed to an important program at Avon Elementary, allowing students to be involved in quality programs at Gore Range Natural Science School.
The Committee for Our Kids Future also had the benefit of Mr. Bonidy’s time and commitment in bringing to the forefront the need for new schools, renovating existing buildings, raising teacher’s salaries, and upgrading each school’s involvement with computer technology. Through the committees endeavors, a school bond issue was put forth and approved for these improvements.
Greg Macik, a member of the TAB team, does his part for the community as well by contributing his time, energy and resources with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Historical Society of Eagle Valley.
Further, TAB Associates, Inc. has worked with Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties by providing architectural services, at no cost, since 2004.
