The Loveland Campus brings county resources and services together in one large building, making it a central hub for county departments.

Haselden Construction recently completed construction of the new Larimer County Loveland Campus. The 46,000-square foot administrative building accommodates Larimer County’s growing need for municipal services for Loveland and southern county residents.

“Larimer County and Northern Colorado are seeing a huge population growth, and the quick rate at which it’s occurring means it requires more infrastructure and buildings to serve the community,” said Ken Baumgartner, Haselden Construction’s regional director. “We’re seeing a tremendous amount of demand across all sectors, from schools and universities to hospitals to offices. All of our work remains centered around providing exceptional services and construction for our customers and the constituents they serve.”

The Loveland Campus, designed by Fort Collins-based The Architects’ Studio, brings county resources and services together in one large building, making it a central hub for county departments.

“Having access to these services in the local community is extremely important to us,” said Larimer County Commissioner Steve Johnson. “This building represents our commitment to customer service to citizens all over the county as well as our resourcefulness to provide a comfortable and beautiful environment in a fiscally responsible manner.”

Larimer County used a debt free funding structure for the new building – money saved from a voter-approved tax to replace the previous aged and undersized administrative building in Loveland and $2 million in grants from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs. Haselden Construction worked closely with the county’s facilities services director and used local Northern Colorado subcontractors to allow for quicker responses to project needs, reduce unnecessary travel time and costs, and ultimately complete the building in a swift 13 months.
