KSU - Trotter Hall Veterinary Anatomy Laboratories Renovation

KSU - Trotter Hall Veterinary Anatomy Laboratories Renovation

The 15,000-square-foot, third-floor renovation of Trotter Hall will create 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 will include a separate gross anatomy laboratory, a microanatomy laboratory, and a student success center. An overhead track system will be installed in the gross anatomy laboratory to allow specimens to be easily transported to and relocated among work stations. Moveable tables, furniture, and technology will be 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 will also provide space to display some anatomical models and teaching specimens. The men’s and women’s restrooms will be reconfigured to make the space fully ADA compliant and each will have shower, changing, and locker facilities. Cooler upgrades will be incorporated to provide animal storage and new prep spaces will be installed to prepare animals for dissection. Mechanical, electric, plumbing, and fire protection systems will also be updated to replace aging, inefficient systems and meet laboratory space and air quality requirements.
