CSU's Michael Smith Natural Resources Building at CSU gets $20.2M face-lift

Sourced from the Coloradoan

Construction is set to wrap up next week on additions to the Michael Smith Natural Resources Building in the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University.

Construction began in 2017 to add approximately 50,000 square feet to the existing building in the heart of CSU's main campus, according to a news release.

Rob Novak, director of communications for Warner College, said the idea for the project launched about two years ago. It’s the first expansion of the college since the late 1970s, Novak said, when construction ran heavy on brick, and has created a more welcoming space with more natural light.

It’s also more functional.

The additional space now houses a student success center, which will offer services such as career counseling and student recruitment. It also has teaching and computer labs, dynamic classroom space, conference space, a living wall, an abundance of tables, gender neutral bathrooms, a nursing station, a reflection room and more.
