Our Proven Animal Care Construction Process

AN END-TO-END ANIMAL CARE FACILITY ENGINEERING AND PLANNING FIRM DESIGNED AROUND YOUR BUSINESS

Your new facility is key to your business. We take that seriously. We know dog daycare building design is different from other types of construction, and our experts understand the many unique considerations for these spaces. For example, open rooms where playtime occurs should include noise-minimizing materials such as acoustic panels and tiles. Doing so helps minimize noise, decrease animal stress, and allow for better communication between employees and staff and customer interactions. It’s also essential to design common pet areas with sections so that animals that do not get along can be separated from one another while still enjoying their daycare experience.
We also have grooming and boarding design expertise that separates us from other design-build firms and general contractors. There are distinct space needs for each stage of the grooming process (bathing, drying, and grooming), so we recommend having three separate rooms for each.

● Bathing rooms require adequate waterproofing, plumbing, draining, and proper HVAC because of the excessive humidity that accumulates within them.
● Drying rooms are loud not only from the animals but also from the drying machines. We’ll often segregate the blower motors from the drying room to minimize animal noise, ultimately decreasing animal stress while prioritizing technician welfare.
● Grooming rooms require efficient layouts for optimal workflow, adequate storage spaces for supplies, and both overhead and task lighting.

For animal boarding facilities, flooring is a top priority. We ensure proper waterproofing and recommend installing non-slip flooring materials to eliminate dog injuries. It's advantageous to have smaller pods or neighborhoods when boarding animals versus having fifty dogs in one room. Segregating the animals controls noise, but more importantly, helps contain contagious substances, limiting the risk of all animals in your facility becoming exposed to respiratory diseases. The HVAC air exchanges are also crucial to minimizing diseases, so we recommend using UV filters to limit pathogens that can gain traction. Lastly, incorporating natural light is also essential for animal welfare, as boarding can often be incredibly stressful for animals and lead to out-of-character behavioral issues. Thus, our boarding facility designs often recommend skylights and several windows.
