The College of Veterinary Medicine Basic Sciences Building was occupied in 1983 as part of the Food for Century III initiative. Due to budgetary shortfalls, a portion of the building was left as "shelled" space with roughed-in utilities. Attainment of programmatic sophistication by a professionally maturing faculty requires more laboratory space to accommodate extramurally funded research programs and new faculty recruits. The "shelled space" occupies the northeast quadrant of the second and third floors of the Veterinary Medicine Basic Sciences Building on South Lincoln Avenue and contains approximately 15,000 NASF. The estimated cost of completing the "shelled" space is in the neighborhood of $3,000,000. The proposed development would approximate the original plan for completion of this space into research laboratories, faculty offices, small classrooms and storage.
The scope of services required of the architect/engineer at this time will be to provide services including program definition, concept development and a cost estimate.
