Construction projects for the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences have been moving forward at a rapid pace, taking advantage of good weather and good planning.
On the Main Campus, the Office of the Dean has moved to its temporary quarters in the Student Services Building near The Oval. Room 108 hosts the reception area, and staff there can assist with further directions to finding specific offices. Construction and renovation of the Office of the Dean in the Anatomy/Zoology Building is on track and the faculty and staff hope to be back in their expanded and renovated quarters by the end of the year.
On the South Campus, work is well underway on the parking lots located west of the James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH). The parking lots should be completed on or before October 19. Once completed, crews will then move to the front of the hospital where work will begin on the client parking lot. The client parking plan calls for removal of the roadside berm, increasing the number of parking spaces, and moving the access road for the eventual establishment of a signal-controlled intersection.
In addition, once work on the west lots is completed, construction will begin on the new Diagnostic Medicine Center (DMC), located north of the VTH and funded by the State of Colorado. The large pile of dirt from the west parking lot project will be used as backfill for the DMC.
