Welliver managed a two-phase project to expand the College of Veterinary Medicine’s infrastructure and teaching facilities to accommodate Cornell’s increasing class size. The expansion, which brings together major teaching, clinical and research spaces, further promotes a collaborative community of students, faculty, and staff. The project also allows the College to increase the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) enrollment.
Work included the demolition of 68,000 SF of existing space, the construction of 65,000 SF of new space, and the renovation of 33,000 SF of existing space within the College. In addition, we also performed infrastructure upgrades to the three-story Schurman Hall, created a shared entrance between that building, the Veterinary Education Center and Veterinary Research Tower, and adaptively reused former diagnostics and necropsy suites.
