Studio West

Dec 2, 2019, 3:03 PM
Construction is still in progress at the new Studio West downtown campus location. Though originally scheduled to be completed in 2019, complications with the building have pushed the completion date back to January, 2020. New walls have been put up, and the second floor renovations are almost complete! This building is promised to be worth the wait and will be a wonderful new addition to the PPCC community.

We are moving forward! Just a few points to mention: All concrete has been removed and new concrete was poured on Monday, October 7th. New roofing is being put in place and the building is leak free (Minus the missing windows). Plumbing for the new restrooms is almost complete. Dirt has been removed for the new recessed dance floor. We are currently on schedule to be ready to move in Dec/January and begin utilizing this fantastic space in the Spring Semester.

Studio West’s new project completion date is scheduled for mid-November, 2019. This delayed opening is due to Chromium being found in the concrete of the building, this heavy metal substance has to be removed in order to move forward with the construction. Structural steel has arrived on site, footers are to be poured, and columns are being placed this week. Parking behind the building will remain offline until project completion. PPCC is very excited to see the finished building and have it ready for classes come Spring 2020 semester! Fun Fact: Studio West was previously Gowdy Printcraft, and chromium was used in colored ink for magazines and newspapers. This might explain why the substance was found in the building.

Center for Health Education and Simulation

Cypress phase I, also known as CHES (Center for Health Education and Simulation), is officially OPEN! Elder Construction and their subcontractors worked long, hard hours all summer to make sure this building would be open for Fall 2019, and their hard work has paid off! Phase I looks fantastic. This is a huge addition to the PPCC community. Cypress holds our health programs such as Nursing and EMT/Paramedic training. And this is only phase I… Phase II is to include simulation spaces for programs such as; Dental Assistant, Surgical Technician, Pharmacy Technician, and Medical Assistant. Construction for phase II of Cypress will begin January 2020. We, as a community, are waiting in great anticipation to see the whole building completed. A huge round of applause is to come for everybody involved! Fun Fact: Governor Jared Polis and Senator Doug Lamborn have both been taken on tours through Cypress phase I.

Great progress at Cypress this week. Crews continue to work hard. The elevator pit has been filled in and safety rail has been installed. Electrical is reaching its final rough in stages with inspections scheduled for next week. The pipes for the headwall units will also be installed in the next week or so.

Looking south into one of the nursing wards. You can see the beginnings of blocking for the headwall units. The back wall is sheetrocked, but we need to leave it half open until we pass inspections. Crews are beginning to run conduit, seen stacked to the right in the photo.
