In April, we reported that the University of Colorado Denver had announced plans for a new building for the College of Engineering, Design and Computing on the Auraria Campus.

As mentioned in our initial post, funding for the building’s first phase was under consideration by the Colorado General Assembly during this year’s session, which ended in early May. Unfortunately, the new CU Denver Engineering building’s funding was not approved by the Legislature this session, which means design and construction will not be moving forward this year.

However, the project remains a key part the “Phase 1 (Years 0-5)” section of the CU Denver Facilities Master Plan (PDF), so it is likely the University will seek funding from the Legislature during its 2020 session.

Hopefully, this project will receive funding next year and can move forward with design and construction in the years that follow.
