Henning Building Replacement
The Pennsylvania State University and the College Agricultural Sciences are excited to begin the Architecture-Engineering Team Selection process for the Henning Building Replacement project. The project will help solidify the College of Agricultural Sciences standing as one of the top-ranked agriculture programs in the county.
The existing 62,140 gross square foot Henning Building was completed in 1967 and houses the Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Science, the Department of Animal Science Department, and includes a basement vivarium. The University has conceived of this project as a replacement building, as the existing building and infrastructure are at the end of their useful life and can no longer support the education and research needs of the College of Agricultural Sciences. The replacement building is currently envisioned on the current ~265 foot by ~ 225 foot site of the existing building, in large part to maintain and strengthen the building’s physical connection to the adjacent Agricultural Science and Industries Building. Due to the prominence and visibility of the location, located in core campus, site evaluations will be required by the successfully team, to establish options to building orientation, massing, campus connections, and aesthetic impact of the new building.
