Animal Health Center

Project Summary:

The Animal Health Center project builds upon recent completion of the Equine Center and Stallion Barn following the master plan for the Oppenheimer Family Equestrian Center. The AHC 17,500 square foot program space allocation includes two primary categories – instructional space and clinical space. These are supported by exterior areas and building service spaces. The instructional space cluster is organized around two flexible teaching labs – one instructional lab for 72 students and one research lab for 16+ students – and the adjacent support spaces needed. The clinical space cluster includes a surgical suite and large examination/procedure room.

Goals for this project include:

  • Providing veterinary care for the college’s many livestock animals in a contemporary facility
  • Providing hands-on learning in animal care for CAFES students
  • Model for the industry energy efficiency and sustainable design focused on life cycle costs
