Microbiology Building Addition
Colorado State University
Colorado State University needed an addition to their Microbiology Building on the main campus in Fort Collins, Colorado. Gail Pelsue was project architect of the design and construction of this three story, 19,000 square foot laboratory building.
The three story addition integrates with the existing 1970 building, using the stone clad entry to create a joint between the two parts. Stone columns were added to the existing building to tie the two pieces together.
The interior of the building includes research space for 6 principal investigators and one scientific resource providing peptide synthesis, DNA analysis and other functions to University clients.
Partially funded by an NIH grant, design and construction was required to meet the regulations of this agency along with CSU campus standards. Campus utilities as well as public utilities and laboratory services were integrated into the functioning of this building.
