Major progress is being made in the construction of a dedicated aerospace building for the University of Colorado Boulder.
Work on the approximately 176,000 square-foot building has been underway since the fall. Once completed, the new building will include an indoor flight environment for testing unmanned aerial systems, as well as a unique roof design that accommodates faculty research and provides lines of sight necessary for activities like satellite tracking.
The building will also group together aerospace engineering’s six main research clusters to facilitate greater collaboration between students and faculty, provide world-class learning spaces, and enable new collaborations between aerospace engineering sciences researchers and faculty and staff in the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics and the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences located next door.

Construction is anticipated to be wrapped up in spring 2019, with full occupancy starting in the fall 2019 semester.
