Colorado State University is getting to begin construction of an $81.9 million biology facility.

Design-build team selected for biology facility at Colorado State

The 152,000-square-foot building will anchor the eastern edge of the university's new science commons.

Colorado State University has chosen the design-build team for its new $81.9 million biology building on the Fort Collins campus.

Hord Coplan Macht and Haselden Construction will plan and construct the 152,000-square-foot building that will anchor the eastern edge of the university's new science commons, Haselden Construction says in a news release.

Hord Coplan Macht (formerly SLATERPAULL Architects) also is working with RATIO Architects on a $56 million, 60,000-square-foot chemistry building that will be erected adjacent to the biology building.

The biology facility will have classrooms and research facilities, as well as large, two-story idea spaces for students and faculty to collaborate outside the research and teaching laboratories. 

The university has scheduled a groundbreaking for both the biology and chemistry buildings on Oct. 15.
