Academic Office West is an office building for UCD’s Anschutz Medical Campus, located on the Research Quadrangle that is formed with the new Research I and II Facilities.

Anderson Mason Dale fully programmed this facility, working with a multitude of University departments and various other vested interests in order to successfully serve the full needs of the University departments.

The program plan focused on balancing two key University priorities: maximum office space and ample opportunities for interdisciplinary interaction.

The project is an 8-story office building of approximately 25,000 square feet per floor. The building is organized along 2-story circulation spaces which connect occupants to the quad to the East and provide opportunities for community interaction. A glass curtain wall allows natural light to penetrate the interior of the building. The center of the building includes a mix of open and enclosed office spaces organized along fingers that link to the dramatic spine spaces

The program includes student service components for the University of Colorado School of Pharmacy. The project was delivered on time and under budget using the CM/GC process. In fact, the bulk of the state-required construction contingency was returned to the campus for project enhancements.
