CVM Equine Hospital: Proposals for Construction Manager-at-Risk

Project: CVM Equine Hospital, NCSU Project #: 202120007


This project will construct a new 103,600 GSF Equine Hospital on the Centennial Biomedical Campus (CBC) that replaces outdated facilities lacking vital units for critical care and sports medicine. The new hospital will include in-patient, outpatient, emergency, orthopedics, surgery, and ICU services with an isolation building, arena, and horse barns. It will house equine clinical teaching as well as integrated research laboratories for regenerative medicine and gastrointestinal health.

The facility will provide:
High-level technology and sophisticated equipment for state-of-the-art treatment lead to signature programs focusing on imaging, standing surgeries, minimally invasive treatments, and forward-looking robotics use.
Improve the human and animal experiences with cognizance of the key users: patients (animals), clients (owners), and faculty and staff.
Provide a complex with pavilions for inpatient, outpatient, emergency, isolation, and sports medicine, and healthy horse barns

Biosecurity segregation is required within the ICU, inpatient/outpatient areas, and between the healthy horse and isolation stalls, as well as at the separate paddock zones for grazing. The facilities must comply with current best practices and requirements to prevent cross-contamination.

The project will include all associated utility infrastructure.
