DENVER – Colorado State University has awarded its Construction Management/General Contractor (CMGC) procurement contract to JE Dunn for the construction of three buildings at the CSU Campus at the National Western Center.
JE Dunn Construction will build the CSU Water Building, CSU Center for Food & Agriculture, and the CSU Animal Health Complex. The procurement process was combined for the Water Building and the Center for Food & Agriculture. A separate procurement was run for the Animal Health Complex. The two procurements were run independently, but simultaneously. JE Dunn was successful in both pursuits.
JE Dunn’s diverse, experienced team’s grasp of the unique requirements of the CSU projects at the National Western Center, including experience in educational and research facilities as well as spaces for public use, contributed to the selection.
“JE Dunn brings significant experience that will directly relate to the success of the CSU projects at the National Western Center, from fostering true community partnerships, to planning and execution of some of the most complex projects in Colorado,” said Amy Parsons, executive vice chancellor of the CSU System. “They understand the value of bringing groups together to align toward a common goal.”
The company will also draw on Colorado resources for this project, ensuring that local workers, trade partners, and suppliers have every opportunity to participate.
