University of Colorado Colorado Springs | Centennial Hall Renovation

  • $13.3M
  • 51,000 SF
  • 2010
  • LEED Gold

The existing Science Building was constructed in 1980 and is used by the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs as a classroom/laboratory facility. This renovation provides new laboratories and research spaces for the Chemistry, Geography and Anthropology Departments. Also included are new general classrooms, computer classroom, science learning center, offices, and miscellaneous support spaces.

This project is part of the University’s Seven Year Growth Plan. The Biology Department, Bio-Energetics and Math were relocated from the building into a new facility, allowing for expansion of the Chemistry Department and relocation of the Anthropology and Geography departments into the building from other facilities on campus.

The renovation supports a mission of the Sciences on the UCCS campus to “encourage interdisciplinary teaching and research, and to foster collaboration and innovation in addressing the challenges facing our society.” In addition, the updated teaching and research facilities will help attract more students and faculty to these growing academic programs.

The mechanical, electrical and technology systems at the renovated areas were completely replaced, designed to satisfy the special requirements of the individual departments and to provide for more efficient and sustainable operation. All interior finishes are new. Exterior work included replacement of the existing roofing system, and replacement of the existing windows and doors.
