Wind Engineering Firm Breezes into New Lease
FORT COLLINS, CO – CPP Wind Engineering, an international wind consultancy based in Fort Collins, recently signed a new lease at 7365 Greendale Road in Windsor. The new lease will combine CPP’s office and wind tunnel operations under one roof.
Peter Kast, Annah Moore and Matt Patyk, with CBRE’s Northern Colorado office represented CPP in the lease.
“Balancing incongruent lease expirations for CPP’s current office and wind tunnel operations, we initially explored build-to- suit projects, sites for purchase as well as options that would continue operations separately. In the end, we identified a development project in the works that perfectly met CPP’s needs for location, size and rent. It’s a true win-win as CPP will end up in a new space with minimal disruption to its business, and the building owner will benefit from the security of a long-term lease with a successful, locally based company,” said Matt Patyk, a vice president with CBRE in Fort Collins.
Formed in the early 1980s by a group of professors and graduates from Colorado State University, today CPP aids building owners, architects and engineers around the globe by helping them understand how considering wind’s effect can improve building design. The company performs wind tunnel testing, computer simulations and technical analyses to enhance building
design efficiency, increase comfort and safety, and promote sustainability.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to get back together under one roof. CBRE truly understood our needs and found us a location that we get to help design and make our own, while keeping us headquartered in Northern Colorado. CPP’s story includes a remarkable history, and our new building in Windsor gives us a home to continue writing our story,” said Laura Knight, director of finance for CPP.
CPP plans to be fully operational in its new space by Third Quarter, 2019. The Windsor property is owned by Windsor Center, LLC.
