Key Drivers When Designing Academic Veterinary Facilities

Realizing the need for more veterinarians and the trend upward in class sizes, many universities are considering adding or expanding their veterinary offerings. These new facilities need to respond to the changing landscape for the next generation of veterinarians — providing an identity and environment of exemplary quality.

Through our experience designing academic veterinary environments, we have identified five key drivers to consider when planning these specialized facilities. We also feature two veterinary facilities throughout this paper as premier examples of how to practically apply these concepts. The key drivers are:
  1. Improved Environments: Safety Enhancements for Individuals and Animals
  2. Improved Flexibility and Collaboration in Lab Environments
  3. Improved Infrastructure
  4. Enhanced Technology
  5. Sustainability and Cost Savings
