The Colorado State University Center for Multiscale Modeling of Atmospheric Processes is a 13,000-square-foot, two-story office building with a clearstory. Its foundation rests on caissons, with half of the foundation wall approximately 18 feet tall. The substructure of the building is a structural-steel moment-frame system with a lightweight composite-concrete second floor and cold rolled-metal stud framing. A 40-foot elevator shaft is constructed of cast-in-place concrete, and the roofing is a fully adhered EPDM system.
The building was equipped with Cat 6E network cabling and a Main Distribution Frame room on the main floor, as well as an Indepedent Distribution Frame room on the second floor. This project was designed and constructed around LEED Silver criteria.
