Front Range Community College opened the $35 million Health Care Careers Center (HCCC) in September of 2020 in Fort Collins, Colo. Designed by Hord Coplan Macht, the 61,000-sf facility offers technology-rich classrooms, teaching labs, collaboration spaces, and group learning venues for programs in nursing and allied health professions. Equipping students with the key competencies needed by the healthcare workforce of the future, the two-story building provides state-of-the-art simulation suites, 24 nursing bed skills stations, six dental chair stations, and a mock emergency room. A central atrium acts as a community hub for study and interaction, as well accommodating campus events. LEEDv4 Gold certification is being sought for the sustainably designed structure, which features a highly efficient variable-volume air distribution system with hot water reheat technology. General contractor Haselden Construction broke ground on the project in June of 2019.
