This multi-phase project implements a 21st century model of veterinary care for The Ohio State University’s Veterinary Medical Center, creating new clinical spaces, incorporating new technologies and optimizing patient flow. Perspectus Architecture provided planning, programming, renderings for fundraising, design and construction administration for the addition to and adaptive reuse of a 1960’s building.

The Ohio State University

The 23,000 square-foot building addition provides primary faculty offices, a conference room, and administration for the Veterinary Medical Center and support spaces. Additional services include patient intake/exam rooms, new registration, reception, holding, surgery, emergency care, triage, intermediate and intensive care.

The 25,000 square-foot interior renovation establishes new exam rooms and support departments sized appropriately to allow for students, instructor, and physician interactions with patients and families, to provide the best quality of care possible.

The Ohio State University

The most important educational and technological facet of the building’s design includes a dedicated Learning Conference Room (LCR) for each individual veterinary specialty group. Each LCR is set up with multiple large format, LED monitors tied to the cameras, video recorders, scopes, and other audio/visual equipment within the procedure and treatment rooms so that veterinary residents and attending professor physicians can review, record, discuss and document cases in real time.
