Washington State University is designing two new research facilities that will be constructed on the Pullman campus. The $40 million Global Animal Health Facility Phase 2 will support the detection and diagnosis of zoonotic diseases and infectious agents such as avian influenza, BSE, foot and mouth disease, West Nile virus, and pandemic flu. The project will also house teaching labs for veterinary medicine. The $66 million Plant Sciences Building is being designed by LMN Architects with Research Facilities Design (RFD) as laboratory design consultant. The teaching and research facility will accommodate programs in horticulture, plant biochemistry and pathology, and crop and soil sciences. The design/build contractor for the Plant Sciences Building is Skanska.
