WSU Veterinary Medical Research Building

This four-story laboratory building connects to an existing structure previously designed by MKA via a shared central circulation spine with impressive, 96-ft-tall, exposed-concrete columns.  Featuring innovative drilled piers saving over 30 percent in foundation costs, this is the fourth of six buildings in a master-planned complex for research and education.  In addition, the structure’s design achieved remarkable Class B vibration standards of 2,000 micro-inches per second.
