BIRD Current Research Projects

Overview

The building blocks of prosthetics come in many materials, shapes, and sizes. To create lightweight yet sturdy prosthetics, we explore 3D printing in plastic, carbon fiber, steel, and titanium. In addition, we investigate different methods of actuation such as miniature 3D printed gearboxes for fingers and twisted coil polymers. While some of these parts may look like something out of Star Wars, these are more than just computer-generated images. These prosthetics are real and they work for real people.  

Recreational Park Master Planning

Parks

Enriching Recreational Opportunities for All Ages

Recreation parks and facilities offer residents a natural environment for a variety of activities. They provide family recreation, encourage people to learn about the environment, increase physical activity and provide greenways for walking, running, biking and skating.

CCCD works in partnership with a community to develop a recreation park master plan that meets the needs of the community. The plan is balanced with other park facilities and with the demographics of the community. CCCD can create a community engagement plan and designs needed for funding sources such as Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO).
