Project at a Glance
Owner: Washington State University
Contractor: Bouten Construction
Project Size: 62,000 sq ft
Electrical Value: $4 million
Scheduled Completion: 2021
The Progressive Design-Build Global Animal Health Phase II houses the Washington Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (WADDL) and the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health disease detection and surveillance program. The new wing will house research and development labs and serve as a teaching lab for veterinary medicine students, postdocs and other health professionals, graduate and undergraduate students. It will connect to the Allen Center, which houses the school’s global animal health research programs.
Teamed with PAE Engineering, the most significant challenge of the project was overcoming the need for additional electrical capacity to the new building. The Valley/PAE team solved the problem of the original Phase I design by providing the electrical service from the main campus loop served by Avista in lieu of the original GAH Phase I feed. This is the third science building Valley has constructed at the WSU Pullman campus.
