FORT COLLINS – Haselden Construction recently completed construction of the new 46,000-square-foot Larimer County Loveland Campus. The administrative building accommodates Larimer County’s growing need for municipal services for Loveland and southern county residents.
“Larimer County and northern Colorado are seeing a huge population growth, and the quick rate at which it’s occurring means it requires more infrastructure and buildings to serve the community,” said Ken Baumgartner, Haselden Construction’s regional director. “We’re seeing a tremendous amount of demand across all sectors, from schools and universities to hospitals to offices. All of our work remains centered around providing exceptional services and construction for our customers and the constituents they serve.”
The Loveland Campus, designed by Fort Collins-based The Architects’ Studio, brings county resources and services together in one large building, making it a central hub for county departments, including the Larimer County Clerk and Recorder, Health and Environment, Human Services, Economic and Workforce Development, and Sheriff’s Offices. The new building also solves visitors’ parking frustrations at the previous county building with ample parking and electric vehicle charging stations.
“Having access to these services in the local community is extremely important to us,” said Larimer County Commissioner Steve Johnson. “This building represents our commitment to customer service to citizens all over the county as well as our resourcefulness to provide a comfortable and beautiful environment in a fiscally responsible manner.”
Larimer County used a debt-free funding structure for the new building—money saved from a voter-approved tax to replace the previous aged and undersized administrative building in Loveland and $2 million in grants from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs.
Haselden completed construction of the building in a swift 13 months.
“The entire Haselden Construction team did a phenomenal job from the very beginning to the full completion. In particular their ability to anticipate things on the front end and work together to meet each milestone was exceptionally helpful. This building stands for what a community and project team can do together,” said Ken Cooper, Larimer County facilities services director.
Haselden Construction has also recently completed the UCHealth Longs Peak Hospital, Colorado State University Biology and Chemistry Buildings, and Fort Morgan Middle School in northern Colorado.
