Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) November 07, 2015
Adolfson & Peterson Construction (A&P) and Bennett Wagner Grody Architects (BWG), as design-build partners, have been selected to complete design and construction for the new $59 million health and medical center building on the Colorado State University (CSU) campus in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Sitting on the northwest corner of South College Avenue and West Prospect Road, the 161,200-square-foot, four-story building will stand as a prominent new gateway to the campus, while consolidating the University’s health care services into one location. The building will house full medical, counseling and health education and prevention services for CSU students, provided by the CSU Health Network. It also will include services for the public through a University of Colorado Health walk-in clinic in partnership with Associates in Family Medicine and occupational health services for the community. A full service pharmacy also will be open to the general public. In addition, the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging will have space in the facility for research, education, and outreach.
“We are excited to be a part of this important project to maintain the health of the CSU community,” said Tom Horsting, A&P’s Senior Vice President. “We employ more than sixty CSU alumni at our company and look forward to working with BWG, the University, UCHealth, and Columbine Health Systems to deliver a project the community can be proud of and students will utilize for all of their healthcare needs.”
The new medical center will provide one-stop, state-of-the-art healthcare services for students by bringing the CSU Health Network’s medical, counseling and health education and prevention services under one roof for the first time, replacing the current aging facilities. Additional services offered in the facility for CSU students will include physical therapy, psychiatry, optometry, immunizations, travel medicine, an allergy and asthma clinic, a women’s clinic, and a dental clinic.
“The prominence of the medical center’s location cannot be overstated,” said Don Grody, founding Principal at BWG. “For prospective students, it will be the first building that many encounter when visiting the campus. We are honored to be involved in completing the design of this facility and to make it a focal point for team-based integrated health services, as well as for research and reflection for students, staff, and the Fort Collins community.”
The new medical center is scheduled to break ground early next year with a spring 2017 completion.
