The Colorado State University campus in Fort Collins is in the pipeline, following the official announcement that an architect and contractor have been selected for the project. Bennett Wagner Grody Architects and Adolfson & Peterson Construction have been awarded the contracts as design-build partners. As a result, the companies will begin work on the $59 million health and medical center for CSU. A ground breaking is scheduled for early next year, while completion is slated for spring 2017.

Set to take shape on the northwest corner of South College Avenue and West Prospect Road in Fort Collins, the new medical center will offer full health education and medical, counseling and prevention services for CSU students. The 161,200-square-foot facility will also offer public services by way of an on-site University of Colorado Health walk-in clinic. The complex will include a pharmacy that will serve the general public. Some of the available space at the new building will be operated by the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging.

According to BWG founding Principal Don Grody, “the prominence of the medical center’s location cannot be overstated,” being not only “the first building that many encounter when visiting the campus,” but also “an important medical provider for the area.” Once completed, the new medical center will bring one-stop, state-of-the-art healthcare services by bringing the CSU Health Network to students.
