The old Equine Reproduction Laboratory (6,446gsf) was destroyed by fire on July 27, 2011. Temporary arrangements were made to house client services and research in other buildings on the grounds until the new building was built. The replacement is an approximately 12,000 gsf building built on the same site at the Foothills Campus, with associated parking and landscape enhancements. It was rebuilt larger than the original building in order to provide improved spaces for teaching, research and offices. There are distinct areas for mare and foal work, assisted reproduction services and stallion work. Animal movement into and around the building was also improved.
