The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Denver recognized SEH architect Ted Halsey with the AIA Denver 2016 President's Award at its annual party.
The award honors Halsey’s service and commitment to the Denver Architectural Foundation (DAF), where he served on the board of directors for 16 years. The mission of the DAF is to “inspire people to explore Denver, experience the importance of design, and envision an exceptional future for Denver.”
It was a great honor, and quite frankly, a surprise to receive the award.
He joined the DAF in the spring of 2001 where, according to AIA Colorado, his efforts always exceeded the norm.
According to the AIA Colorado, Halsey was instrumental in transforming the DAF into what it is today. He led the foundation’s efforts to significantly enhance its reach and capabilities, quintupling its annual budget, added full-time staff, created a more sophisticated presence through its website and communications efforts, and expanded programming.
Halsey says that the DAF is “one of the best things that has happened to Denver and its architecture.”
