BSA Lifestructures

Infectious Disease Research Laboratory

Center for Vector-Borne & Infectious Disease Laboratory

BSA is designing a new lab facility on the CSU Foothills Campus to house the Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology Department faculty and researchers located in two different existing buildings. This project consolidates current space into a newly renovated, state-of-the-art facility with a functional research laboratory, insectary, and office space.

The ability to collaborate was a key design element in the development of the renovated facility. The new open office space allows for researchers to readily interact with their peers and share resources. Adjacent huddle spaces create semi-private areas for meetings and group work.  Private meeting rooms are used for confidential conversations and focused work.

The building is designed to fit in with the existing campus, utilizing a material palette complementary to the surrounding buildings while staying true to the CSU campus aesthetic standards.

“BSA has been an invaluable partner in our effort to deliver the new CVID facility for Colorado State University. We’ve had many challenges from both a design and budget perspective and BSA has played a large role in the overall success of this project. They have worked closely with Tetrad, CSU Facilities and most importantly the Research Group themselves to take us from a partial programming vision to what will be a new state of the art, world class research facility opening this Fall at Colorado State University.” – Larz Lock, Senior Project Manager
