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 faculty and research infrastructure that is currently located in two different existing buildings. This new facility is not an expansion, rather a consolidation of current space and into a new, state-of-the-art building with functional research laboratory, insectary, and office space.

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

Collaboration is a key design element for the new building. The new open office space allows for researchers to interact with their peers and share resources. Private offices are used for private conversations and focused work. Huddle spaces create a space for those in the open office to use during meetings and group work.

“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
