My article with photos regarding the CSU Spur campus construction occurring as part of the massive National Western Center expansion and renovation in Denver, CO is published online on the website of The Fence Post magazine, and should be out in this upcoming Monday’s print edition.
I have an article submitted that should be published soon about the construction on the three buildings comprising the CSU Spur campus located on the grounds of the National Western Center in Denver, CO. One is the Hydro building, which will be focused on water education, research, and issues.
Another building is the Terra building, which will be focused on education, research, and issues regarding land and agriculture.
The third building is the CSU Spur Vida building, which will be focused on human and animal health. Vida should be complete and ready to tour by the time the upcoming National Western Stock Show arrives in January of 2022. But that image will be a separate blog post in the future!
I was blessed to be able to schedule another editorial photography and interview appointment yesterday (September 10, 2021) in order to do a second story on the massive construction project on the grounds of the National Western Stock Show.
This story will focus on Colorado State University’s (CSU) presence and partnership on the site and its agricultural implications for the state of Colorado. But I also got to sign one of the construction beams that will be placed near the top of CSU’s “Hydro” building, which should be completed sometime in 2022. So I guess my name will be IN the building, rather than on it.
Pretty cool bonus after the tour, though! Now the Hydro building will always produce a smile whenever I see it in the future as that is as close as I will ever get to having my name on a building.
I had the pleasure of being able to visit the National Western Center/Complex in Denver, CO and take photos of the construction progress, as well as talk to a number of the spokespeople for the entities involved in the construction and expansion of the National Western Center grounds and buildings. Most people will know the location as the site where the historic National Western Stock Show takes place every January.
What most people don’t know is how massive the scope and size of the expansion and construction project is. After a couple of hours on site, talking to the awesome spokespeople and taking photos of the construction progress, I felt like trying to absorb the information in front of me was akin to drinking water through a firehose!
There is so much going on, beyond just getting the new Stockyards Events Center ready for 2022’s National Western Stock Show and moving ahead with other construction. I have a lot of interview on tape and will be transcribing it ASAP.
I can’t wait to write a number of magazine articles about the progress of the 1.3 billion dollar expansion project and what it means for January 2022 at the National Western Stock Show.
It is impressive! More to come regarding this in the future.
