DENVER — Colorado’s most visited cultural attraction, Denver Zoo, held its official groundbreaking on February 7 for its new animal hospital. The existing hospital was originally built 51 years ago, and the redesign will modernize its aging infrastructure and improve operating efficiencies.
Led by Stantec, a global architecture, engineering, and consulting firm, the 22,000-square-foot facility will incorporate state-of-the-industry animal care and provide safe access to the animals, offering holding areas that include quarantine spaces. The building design includes considerations for noise, views, and access to daylight to ensure animal comfort. Haselden Construction is the GC on the project.
