In 2015, West Rome Animal Clinic sought to expand their operations to offer animal boarding in addition to their current veterinary services. This would require a whole new facility with custom designed space dedicated to boarding kennels.
This design/build project for the new animal clinic and boarding facility involved detailed planning. The concrete slab was engineered with integrated drains to serve the unique needs for the indoor custom boarding kennels. The new building design included medical surgery rooms configured for x-ray equipment and gas anesthetics, exam rooms, and office space. The ultimate challenge of the project was to provide minimal disruption to the current undersized clinic that remained operational on the construction site.
To prevent interference in the care for existing customers and patients, the new building was constructed behind the existing business office allowing West Rome Animal Clinic to remain operational during the build out of the new facility. The new 5,000 sq. ft. craftsman style structure with CMU (concrete masonry unit) walls and column accents welcomes new and existing clients to West Rome Animal Clinic. The new facility allows the clinic to offer expanded services to serve the Rome area’s veterinary and boarding needs.
