Henning Building Replacement
The replacement building will support the existing programs in the facility, while supporting projected
departmental growth. The College (Agricultural Sciences) and Departments (Veterinary and Biomedical Science, Animal Science) seek a state-of-the-art facility with laboratories, exceptional teaching and research spaces, a new vivarium facility, and offices.
The total project budget, including soft costs and FF&E is $89,600,000. This is divided into $72.lM for construction (including an allowance for swing space), $11.7M in soft costs and $5.8M in contingency.
Review and verification of the program will be the first step to be completed by the A/E firm, followed by the design phase. The A/E firm will be selected at the February 2018 Board of Trustees Meeting. We anticipate CM selection in April 2018, with a construction start date of December 2019 and occupancy in December 2021.
The University intends to engage a Construction Management (CM) firm to provide both pre-construction and construction phase services for the project described above. Along these lines, it is intended that the awarded CM firm will ultimately enter into a GMP (Guaranteed Maximum Price) contract with the University.
