Notice of Commencement of Negotiations for Construction Manager At-Risk Services

Kansas State University’s (K-State) College of Agriculture (COA) 2030 Facilities Master Plan established a strategic vision for prioritized investment in its main-campus, Agronomy North Farm, and North Campus teaching, research, and extension facilities. The main campus master plan recommended the creation of a new Global Center for Grain and Food Innovation and renovations to Call Hall and Weber Hall as the highest priority projects. The Global Center for Grain and Food Innovation will support the College of Agriculture’s efforts to strengthen existing programs and support innovative initiatives underway to harness K-State’s unique strengths in grain science and animal sciences and support transdisciplinary research and innovation in food product innovation, food safety, and food security. Call Hall and Weber Hall are home to Animal Sciences and Industry. The buildings comprise 211,022 GSF and were constructed in the late 1950’s – early 1960’s time frame. Following an addition to Weber Hall in 1988, the buildings have had limited renovations and the complex needs a comprehensive renovation to address deferred maintenance and teaching and research lab modernization.
