Poultry Research Farm Unit Relocation

Project Overview:
The Poultry Research Farm Unit Relocation Phases III VI will construct the new Phase III Processing Plant, which will include an 18,800 square foot building dedicated to the advancement of research and educational efforts related to poultry food safety, food quality, animal welfare, processing efficiency, and other areas of study related to Poultry Science. Phase IV will include multiple pen-houses, a hatchery, a battery house, a chamber house, a breeder house, and various ancillary buildings. It is anticipated that facilities constructed in Phase IV will add approximately 102,000 square feet. Phase V will demolish the existing 20 buildings located in the Auburn University Research Park. If construction costs are favorable and if the total project budget allows, this project will also include Phase VI. This phase of the project proposes to construct approximately 57,000 square feet to include an aviary house, a second chamber facility and two additional pen-houses.
