Two firms have been selected to design and build the first building at Kansas State University's new Olathe campus.
Kansas State officials say 360 Architecture of Kansas City, Mo., and Weitz Company of Lenexa have been chosen to design and build the $28 million Institute for Animal Health and Food Safety. Ground is expected to be broken later this year for the 100,000-square-foot building.
The institute will include educational and lab spaces for research, education and technology commercialization in animal health and food safety.
Kansas State's campus is part of the Johnson County Education and Research Triangle. The building should be completed by early 2011.
