Notice of Requested Architectural Services

Notice is hereby given of the commencement of the selection process for architectural services for the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine Mosier Hall Small Animal Surgical Suites project.

The existing small animal surgical suites at Mosier Hall in the College of Veterinary Medicine, was designed in 1969, and has not been upgraded since then. The current facility is no longer suitable to accommodate present-day equipment and caseload and does not support current student teaching methods or efficient patient care. It does not accommodate technical advances, particularly in ophthalmic and orthopedic surgery. A recent site visit by the accrediting body, the American Veterinary Medical Association – Council on Education, deemed the existing suites as marginal to unacceptable.

This proposed project will reconfigure and modernize the Small Animal Surgery Suites using existing square footage and repurpose an additional 800 square feet, expanding the surgery suits to 8,515 square feet. The renovation will provide seven surgical suites and double the table capacity. Anesthetic induction will accommodate eight patients at once. The recovery room is designed for patient comfort and efficiency, located adjacent to small animal ICU. The design includes modern surgical scrub facilities (hands free), appropriate barrier separation of sterile and non-sterile spaces, and strategic storage for efficient workflow. The project construction budget is $4,606,400.

An architectural/engineering program is available at For more information contact Rosanna Carvalho at or at 785-532-1732.
