FORT COLLINS – CSU has selected Denver-based Mortenson Construction as the lead contractor for its proposed on-campus stadium.
Mortenson was one of seven bids made on the project. Those companies who submitted bids were interviewed earlier this month, with their submittals analyzed by a review panel that consisted of the project management firm, architects and CSU facilities, athletics and administrative staff.
This panel evaluated the bids based on a number of factors, including the quality of the firm, the firm’s experience with similar projects, and the costs included in the proposal.
Based on all these criteria, Mortenson’s proposal was given the highest marks, according to a release from CSU. CSU and Mortenson will work together to finalize a contract.
Fundraising is currently underway for the project, which is in the schematic design phase.
The project has not yet been approved by the CSU Board of Governors, but in the event that the project is approved, Mortenson may be further engaged to perform construction services at the university’s discretion, according to the release.
