U.S. Army Public Health Command

Veterinary Center Replacements Study

Veterinary Centers (VETCENs) support training of graduate veterinary officers; care and treatment of military working dogs; care and treatment of government-owned animals (GOAs), which includes ceremonial horses and Navy marine animals; care and treatment of privately-owned animals (POAs); treatment, control, and prevention of zoonotic diseases; and food defense activities.

HERA developed a 21,692-sf prototype model program for VETCEN facility replacements at Ft. Benning, Ft. Riley, and Ft. Campbell as part of a Capital Investment Proposal (CIP) development process. Each of these facilities includes animal holding, animal procedure rooms, laboratories, imaging, training/education space, offices, and animal/lab/building support spaces.

The new VETCENs will comply with requirements for LEED Silver certification.

HERA held a small-business-set-aside IDIQ with the USACE-Mobile District having a primary focus on Biomedical Research Laboratory and Vivarium Planning and Design. This task order served the U.S. Army Public Health Command for veterinary facility replacements.
