CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL COLORADO
South Campus Hospital
Located in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, this satellite hospital campus includes urgent care, ambulatory care and outpatient and inpatient beds. The project’s first phase opened in December 2013 and encompasses more than 187,000 square feet with future capacity to expand as community needs grow. Children’s Hospital Colorado expects to host nearly 80,000 patient visits at the South Campus during its first year.
As the design architect for this project, FKP was challenged by the client to create a new campus that respected and tied to their strong architectural brand from the main Aurora campus, but designed to be much less costly than that brand. Additionally, the FKP was challenged to deliver the new campus in under two years from the start of master planning to opening of the hospital. The integration of the delivery team (owner, design and construction teams) enabled this building to be delivered ahead of that schedule.
