The James E. Oldfield Animal Teaching Facility is a unique facility allowing for integrated and hands-on instruction for the Department of Animal and Rangeland Sciences. It was the first of four projects to replace dilapidated agricultural buildings. This new 19,799sf facility contains a multi-use arena for showing and handling animals that opens directly to adjacent classrooms, allowing for hands-on instruction and activities. It also contains two state-of-the-art laboratories.

The TAB scope included testing and balancing for all air handling units, heat pumps, exhaust fans and 1 fume hood on the air side. Water balancing includes pumps and circuit setters for the ground water heating/cooling loop for the heat pumps and the domestic hot water heat recovery loop.
