CU Denver Names SmithGroup as Design Firm for New Engineering, Design, and Computing Building

DENVER, CO — The University of Colorado Denver has selected SmithGroup to design a new engineering, design, and computing building at a downtown Denver location on the east side of Speer Boulevard. Construction is slated to begin in late 2022 with a planned opening date in time for the 2024-25 academic year.

In addition to housing CU Denver’s College of Engineering, Design, and Computing (CEDC) and leveraging computing and technology initiatives campus-wide, the building will serve as the anchor of an open innovation district. The project is part of a major goal of CU Denver’s 2030 Strategic Plan to cultivate new technology, partnerships, programming, diverse talent, and in-demand jobs, all in one hub located in the heart of downtown Denver.

“This [building] is essential as technology is changing faster than ever and industry is asking engineers to do new types of work that require increased creativity, teamwork, and collaboration across disciplines,” said Martin Dunn, Dean of CEDC. “It will also amplify our research in important areas like artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and robotics, where emerging technologies are transforming health, construction, manufacturing, cities, and space.”

“Our SmithGroup team could not be more excited to partner with CU Denver on this long-awaited flagship project," said Mecayla Cobb, SmithGroup's Higher Education Studio Leader in Denver and Principal in charge of the project. “We look forward to designing a facility that will create a sense of belonging for all, foster innovation and future growth, embed sustainability, and display state-of-the-art, hands-on learning for CU Denver and our surrounding community.”
