Built initially for a group of private investors in October 2000, the current public city facility is a 45,000 square foot block masonry and steel bar joist girder building with rubber roofing. Inside, a special laser precision concrete slab was poured to facilitate an ice sheet for winter sports along with overhead doors for maintenance equipment. The Center also houses full service locker rooms with showers, stadium bleachers with ADA compliant elevator access, concession stand with seating area, laser tag room, game room, and administrative offices. On the exterior, RCI facilitated the placement of a miniature golf course, concrete pads, asphalt, and landscaping. RCI was the CMAR on this project and led the design team alongside Grey Wolf Studio Architecture. Randy Richardson, Clay Weibel, Kathy Sitzman, and Charlie Swainson were all assigned responsibilities for this project.
Elegance and sophistication yet a down home western atmosphere is what every customer will experience when visiting the new construction of the Security First Bank branch in Laramie, Wyoming. RCI’s completion of this project has brought a premier financial facility to Laramie and has allowed Security First Bank to serve the community for many years to come.
RCI was tasked with demolition of the previous facility while maintaining a temporary structure to allow business operations to continue during the construction process. The 4,000 square foot facility is built on a concrete foundation with both wood and steel framing. A multi-lane drive up on the side provides quick and easy access to the facility for Security First customers.
Decorative stone masonry provides a rugged yet stylish look on the exterior. On the interior, customers are met by an inviting fireplace nestled among western decor and a custom skylight installed by RCI.

Situated on the sixth floor of the US Bank Building in downtown Cheyenne, Cameco Resources contracted RCI to conduct a modern office remodel to expand their operations in the Rocky Mountain region. This professional office space required demolition and removal of the existing 6,400 square foot build-out.
In its place, steel stud framing formed the basis of an office consisting of two video-enabled conference rooms, enclosed offices including both administrative and executive stylings, break area with appliances, and handicap accessible restrooms. Accompanying these renovations is an extensive filing work station with countertop work space and wall mounted cabinetry.
The space provides an open atmosphere with graphical styling throughout glass encased workspaces with space saving entryways. Energy efficiency to include lighting and temperature control also played a key role in bringing Cameco Resources to the forefront of the Cheyenne business community.
