This project consists of several structures to be used in the demonstration and teaching of sciences specifically related to larger domestic animals from sheep and goats to cows and horses. This is a teaching facility for the Veterinary School of Medicine. Structures include teaching demonstration areas, classrooms, equine housing stables, bovine shelter structures, and supporting spaces for feed and bedding storage, waste collection, parking, shade canopies and exercise pastures. A portion of the building will house a Histopathology lab and Necropsy lab for large animals.
Hardrock’s scope of work for the buildings included continuous and spread footings, elevator pits, cast in place stem walls, CIP piers, CIP retaining walls, integral color CIP column encasements, interior slab on grade with macro fibers over abc and vapor barrier, stair pan fill, concrete pads on roof over foam, and concrete topping over metal deck. The sitework scope included concrete “grooved” paving over abc, sidewalks, transformer pads, drive approaches and concrete aprons, handicap ramps, curb and gutter, vertical curb, ribbon curb, concrete spillways, gate tracks, valley gutter, light pole bases, and continuous footings for the site masonry walls.
