Colorado State University Translational Medicine Institute Foundation Integrity Testing

Colorado State University (CSU) is one of the nation’s top schools for new animal and human therapies, thanks to the Translational Medicine Institute (TMI).

TMI provides a place for scholars, researchers, clinicians, and entrepreneurs to collaborate on identifying connections between human and animal health. This is made easier because of CSU’s strong record of research in orthopedics, biomedical engineering, immunology, stem cells, infectious disease, and surgery.

From inception to building dedication, we worked with Tetrad Property Group, the master developer, to manage a highly complex schedule. We provided materials testing and special inspections that were essential to completing the 130,000-square-foot centerpiece of CSU’s south campus expansion.

We added efficiencies to our inspections and observed all the structural elements, such as drilled piers, reinforced concrete, masonry, structural steel, welds, bolts, and spray-applied fireproofing. We also employed sonic echo testing to evaluate the integrity of the building’s piers, ensuring that essential structural elements were free of inclusions, cracks, and breaks.

The university’s focus on accelerating development of promising medical therapies is what makes this project special. The TMI will help bridge the gap that exists between human and animal health research.

The project began in 2013 and was completed in the spring of 2019.
