SDSU - Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory

SDSU - Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory

In the fall of 2015, The Clark Enersen Partners was selected to lead the programming, design and documentation services to update the veterinary diagnostic laboratory serving the State of South Dakota.  Known as the Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory (ADRDL), it is located on the campus of South Dakota State University in Brookings and was last updated in 1993. The Clark Enersen Partners is the lead firm and have teamed with a local engineering consultant and a national VDL consultant to carry out the endeavor.

The scope of the project is to expand and modernize the current Animal Disease and Research Diagnostic Laboratory (ADRDL) facility and associated research space, while providing added capability to deal with suspected BSL-3 agents. The project will involve an addition to the north that will house all new diagnostic laboratories and necropsy space while renovating the existing diagnostic facility to expand research functions associated with the institutional mission. The program and conceptual design study was completed in April of 2016.
