KSU - Trotter Hall Veterinary Anatomy Laboratories

KSU - Trotter Hall Veterinary Anatomy Laboratories

The 15,000-square-foot, third-floor renovation of Trotter Hall creates separate functional spaces in order to enhance the student learning experience and provide current equipment and facilities for the modern veterinary medicine classroom. The renovation includes a separate gross anatomy laboratory, a microanatomy laboratory, and a student success center. An overhead track system was installed in the gross anatomy laboratory to allow specimens to be easily transported to and relocated among work stations. Moveable tables, furniture, and technology were incorporated throughout the entire floor to allow students flexible ways to learn and study in a variety of group sizes and classroom arrangements. 
 
An office suite with three faculty offices also provides space to display some anatomical models and teaching specimens. The men’s and women’s restrooms were reconfigured to make the space fully ADA compliant and each has shower, changing, and locker facilities. Cooler upgrades were incorporated to provide animal storage and new prep spaces were installed to prepare animals for dissection. Mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems were also updated to replace aging, inefficient systems and meet laboratory space and air quality requirements.
