This 174,000 square foot project will consist of a new Equine Research Facilit, and a new Overton Hall Classroom Addition & Renovation. The Small Animal Teaching Hospital will support clinical, student resident/intern, and diagnostic growth. Totaling more than 100,000 GSF, the new facility includes spaces for companion animal specialty services, public and office spaces.
The Equine Research Facility will provide research, isolation, treatment, housing and procedure spaces for an ever expanding equine research program. Auburn currently trains veterinarians for the state of Kentucky, directly funneling veterinarians back into the largest equine industry in the US.
The Overton Hall Classroom Addition/Renovation creates a new learning commons for the college and expands the class size from the current 110 to take on up to 150 students per class. With large classroom, seminar and technology rich learning environments, this new tool will provide a central space for classroom learning for years 1 through 3.
