KSU Olathe International Animal Health and Food Safety Inst.


Walter P Moore provided structural engineering design services for the first facility on the new K-State Olathe Campus. From across the globe, this new campus attracts people who are interested in protecting the world’s food supply and promoting animal health. Underlying all the areas of technology, discovery and commercialization are bioscience education and workforce development.

K-State Olathe will partner with existing educational institutions at an every level, from the Johnson County school districts and area colleges to other educational institutions within the Animal Health Corridor.

As the first campus building, the National Animal Health & Food Safety Institute is approximately 110,000 gross square feet in size and houses educational, administrative and research space with a focus on food safety and animal health. One third of the facility is dedicated to laboratory space with the remaining space available for administrative and educational purposes.
