Colorado State University has selected Heath Construction to build the $6.75 million third phase of Colorado State University's Bioenvironmental Research Building. The 21,700-sf, three-story addition to the existing Bioenvironmental Research Building is scheduled for completion in late 2008. The expansion will house research programs on infectious diseases and an array of mechanical and technical systems. Upon completion, the 7,855-square-foot first floor of the project will feature laboratories with animal holding facilities, areas dedicated to insect management, and other research related space.
The project also includes a 6,000-sf basement and a 7,855-sf attic with fire-protection systems, building controls, electrical systems, telecommunications distribution, building security systems, and mechanical equipment essential for controlling air filtration and the voluminous air exchange required for safe facility operation. The project team includes The FWA Group Architects; Cator, Rama & Associates, consulting mechanical/electrical engineers; Wray Plumbing and Heating Co.; and Gregory Electric Inc.
