Description of Project
The University of Illinois seeks to employ a qualified A/E firm to assist in developing a comprehensive master plan for the College of Veterinary Medicine, one which will begin to address the needs of this College for the next decade and beyond.

Specific needs include, but are not limited to, creation of a "link" between the existing Veterinary Medicine Basic Science and Veterinary Teaching Hospital buildings, enabling improved integration of functional and programmatic areas of the College into an Information Commons with an expanded library, computer suite, video-conferencing rooms, large and small student study rooms, a large classroom and auditorium, student locker rooms, expanded cafeteria, and bookstore. Office functions, including the Dean's office, Administrative Affairs, Academic and Student Affairs, Advancement, Public Engagement, and Research offices would be co-located in the proposed space. Vacated space, made available through this expansion, will be planned under this exercise and may include remodeled space for new initiatives in the areas of conservation medicine, environmental toxicology/pathology, and infectious disease. This effort will also include the expansion and remodeling of the small animal surgical and examination areas. Current surgery and obstetrics laboratories will be reviewed for remodeling into teaching laboratories for surgery, faculty research laboratories, and office space.

This effort will explore the opportunities to further develop the existing Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (VDL) to provide the space to relocate other state diagnostic services to the UI campus. The extension of VDL could create expanded laboratory facilities to house clinical pathology, serology, and microbiology services.

The campus is currently working with an architectural firm for a biowaste and biosafety level 2/3 laboratory/animal facility which will be situated within the Veterinary Medicine Complex, most likely close to the existing Basic Sciences Building. This comprehensive plan should denote the footprint of the biowaste/biosafety facility but does not need to address the design or space use of the facility.

The selected firm will work with the owner''s designated personnel to establish and understand goals and objectives, develop both short and long range programs, develop design concepts, prepare a master plan report, and prepare schematic design level drawings. An understanding of existing building systems will be imperative, and long range systems planning shall also be an integral part of this effort.
