Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes
BCER Engineering provided Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Design for the University of Colorado’s Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes. This 115,000 square foot clinical care/laboratory facility is located at the center of the UCHSC campus, and is one of the largest pediatric diabetes centers in the country. The first two floors of this four-story building serves the clinical care function and is specifically designed around the children and young adults that will benefit from this special facility. The remaining upper two floors are dedicated to research, totaling 52,000 square feet of wet laboratory space. The approach taken for this project was to design and construct the core and shell for all four floors of the building including the tenant build-out of only the first and fourth floors. Construction of this first phase was complete in early 2005. BCER then completed the tenant build out of the remaining two floors, completing the research and clinical care functions of the center.
