Colorado State University Scott Bioengineering BuildingFort Collins, Colorado
A signature building that symbolizes and supports the creation of a 21st Century land grant university.
Located at the intersection of Laurel Street and Meridian Avenue — a main entrance to Colorado State University’s campus — the facility was designed as a signature building that symbolizes and supports the creation of a 21st Century land grant university.
The three-story building houses interdisciplinary research and teaching laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, and the Student Success Center, as well as core and shell space to accommodate future build-outs.
LEED® Gold certified, the high-performance design utilizes many energy-reducing strategies including variable daylighting, heat-recovery systems, and energy monitoring. The project also employs “native” architecture and landscape to reduce the need to transport materials over long distances.
This project also includes a 10,000-square-foot, structural steel research laboratory with two laser labs and a linear accelerator.
