The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, originally erected in 1972, has undergone various renovations over the years. However, one area that remained largely untouched was the section dedicated to food animals. Hoffpauir Studio was entrusted with the task of both expanding and modernizing this space, and the project yielded significant improvements.
Collaborating with renowned expert Dr. Temple Grandin, we orchestrated a transformative change in the layout. This redesign focused on creating a more natural and efficient flow for cattle as they move through the alleyways towards the chutes and examination tables. Alongside this, we introduced several vital enhancements, including a state-of-the-art climate-controlled surgery room, a treatment room, a tech station, and a versatile meeting space.
Inside the facility, we incorporated brand-new features such as upgraded feed storage and an expedite area. Additionally, the exterior was revamped to include a covered drop-off space, complete with stalls and a sand stall, enhancing both functionality and aesthetics. This comprehensive renovation has not only modernized the facility but also greatly improved its functionality and comfort for both animals and staff.
