Progress Update – Irish Miners Memorial

Sep 29, 2021

In 2019, Consilium Design was invited to enter a design competition sponsored by the Irish Network Colorado, INCO for the memorial of an unmarked grave of Irish miners that had worked in the mines found in Leadville, CO.  Shortly after winning the competition, Consilium Design then proceeded to refine the competition design; work closely with the centerpiece sculptor from Ireland; work with local friends of the project; assist with fund raising efforts; estimate costs, solicit bids, and prepare construction documents.

We are proud to announce that Consilium Design has been providing construction administration services for the construction of the memorial and it plans to be installed by the fall of 2022.  It has been an honor to be part of this amazing project and to help memorize these Irish miners.
