Projects in Planning & Design
Sustainability, Energy and Environment Complex (SEEC)
Cost: $100 million
Gross Square Feet: 289,000 (renovation) and 115,000 (new construction)
Located on CU-Boulder’s East Campus, SEEC will bring together environmental researchers from campus and neighboring federal labs to support environmental science, environmental sustainability, and renewable energy. The project consists of constructing a new wet lab building south of the MacAllister Building, and the renovation of the MacAllister Building into a dry lab with classrooms and office space.
Cost: $11.8 million
Gross Square Feet: TBD
This project involves expanding the Space Science Center (SPSC) with construction of a new campus data center to support the university's research computing needs. The data center will bring together some of the smaller data centers now scattered throughout campus in dozens of locations.
Cost: $2.65 million
Gross Square Feet: 8,400
The university plans to remodel the Cristol Chemistry and Biochemistry Building to house a lab for atmospheric chemistry and air quality research. The project will renovate the third and fourth floors of the chemistry building to house the lab and research group overseen by Jose-Luis Jimenez, an associate professor at CU and a fellow with the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences. The new lab will allow scientists to do innovative experiments on air quality and climate change, as well as help foster collaboration between researchers at CU and other institutions.
Start: Summer 2013
