The Office of the Dean has moved back into its offices in the Anatomy/Zoology Building, and is now occupying its newly remodeled existing space and enjoying an additional 1,500 square feet of new construction.
“In 2001, the American Veterinary Medical Association conducted a reaccredidation site visit and one of the areas they noted for improvement was the College’s administrative offices,” said Dr. Lance Perryman, Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. “Their report stated that the office space was inadequate to meet the needs of students. Since then, we have made small improvements, but this remodeling and new construction fully realizes our ambition to better serve the needs of our community.”
The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences would like to recognize the efforts of Per Hogestad, who was the architect and interior designer of the new offices. Hogestad is an architect with Colorado State University’s Facilities Management team. In addition to Hogestad, William Conn played an important role in construction oversight. Conn is with the College as a civil engineer project manager.
In other construction news, work continues on the Diagnostic Medicine Center at the South Campus with construction moving above the ground. Support pillars are being put in place, as the project moves from a hole in the ground to concrete rising to the sky.
