The building is a 2-story flat-roofed structure with utility rooms on the ground floor and equipment rooms on the 2nd floor. It is used for housing of small animals (mice, rats, rabbits). Animal housing is partly in conventional facilities and partly in clean rooms (SPF areas).

All materials brought into SPF areas either have to pass through an H2O2 sluice or be treated in a mobile autoclave (for steam-heating and steam-sterilization). Persons enter the SPF area via air locks and air showers.

The sanitary and changing rooms, for men and women, are located in front of the SPF area. A scullery, with storage space for animal feed, cages and spaces for deliveries and disposal (which spaces have their own access from the outside), is located in front of the access to the conventional animal housing facility. The staff entrance is connected to a separate area that comprises a reception area, three offices and a lounge for animal keepers.
