Colorado State University Microbiology Building
Starting construction in January 2002 gave the project team only 18 months for construction and move-in. To remedy this, CSU and Hensel Phelps Construction Co. formed a plan and a team and began construction on a new 23,000-sq-ft, three-story microbiology building. Unique to this building, the entire structure was built around the strict vibration criteria dictated by the precise instruments used within the laboratories. Even the slightest vibration would render multi-million dollar machines virtually useless. Work had to be accomplished in such a manner as to maintain access to the existing facility and its functionality.
