Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine
Ames, IA


Intensive master planning efforts for ISU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, including the observation and documentation of every room within the college, resulted in a major re-visioning for the campus. The first phase of the multi-phase project was a new Equine/Food Animal Hospital. The second phase was an upgrade for the Small Animal Hospital Facilities.

Two-phase project included a new addition and renovations.

Both phases improves patient welfare and enhances the learning environment by offering increased room size, access to natural light, improved air quality through more efficient ventilation and the incorporation of emerging technologies available to both faculty and students. Already existing services were expanded and updated with more durable finishes that decrease annual operational costs across the campus. We were pleased when the second phase attained LEED Gold certification.

Seven years ago, the national rankings of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State were near the bottom due to many factors, including facilities that were below acceptable standards. With the help of INVISION, the College’s facilities are once again thriving and receiving national recognition. They have helped bring back the standing and prestige of this proud college.
