Colorado Mental Health Institute – Pueblo CO

Description

"This project for the State Hospital for the Insane at Pueblo included the construction of 3 dormitories, a dining hall, and an addition to the nurses' home. The dormitories are 2 stories in height and will accommodate approximately 300 patients. The dining hall (shown in the upper illustration) is T-shaped in plan with over-all dimensions of 131 by 135 feet and contains separate dining halls for men and women. The nurses' home addition provides 38 bedrooms, lounges, administrative offices, and sitting rooms. All of these buildings are fireproof with concrete floor slabs, exterior walls of brick, and roofs either of concrete slab or steel construction. The project was completed in July 1937 at a construction cost of $400,418 and a project cost of $424,771. The construction cost of the dining hall was $81,018 and its project cost $85,914. Each of the 3 dormitories was erected at a construction cost of $60,110 and a project cost of $63,742. The costs on these individual buildings are estimated."

Some work on the hospital was also done by the WPA.
