The owners of a Large and Small Animal Clinic needed to move out of their small space and open a state of the art facility. Part of the facility serves small animals and another part incorporates an area for large animals. Using a prefabricated metal building allowed us to keep the costs down. The large animal facility has indoor/outdoor stables, a large animal surgery, and a custom built hoistway to transport horses and other large animals into the operating room. In addition, it was planned so that horse trailers can be pulled into the building and the animals unloaded inside. The small animal wing has examination rooms, a pharmacy and laboratory, kennels, an operating room, and a dental cleaning station.
The veterinary clinic was designed to fit within a prefabricated steel building to save on construction costs. The architect, of course, could not resist having at least some exterior detail. The steel supports help to break up the exterior.
