Architecture, Quantity Surveying, Mechanical and Electrical Services, and Project Management, all under one roof. We offer a variety of services to take your building project from concept to completion. It all adds up to a more unified and cost effective service. Your business benefits from experts in all the relevant fields. Your building is created around the needs of animals and the professionals who care for them.
If you choose ACD, you can rest assured that we are firmly in your corner. Throughout your project we will communicate with you regularly. We will ensure we fully understand your needs and your hopes for your centre, so that we can give you the best advice based on our extensive experience.
For over 25 years, Alex Darvill and his team at ACD Projects have been helping veterinary professionals and animal welfare charities design and build their ideal animal care facility.
Our projects have included veterinary practices, referral hospitals – including large or small animal and equine, animal shelters and boarding facilities (kennels and catteries). We also provide for specialist needs such as mixed small animal centres and shelters (whether you want a rabbitry or an aviary for example), as well as universities and zoos.
We create amazing buildings our clients can be proud of – each one is a flagship project for our clients, and is personal to us too.
We specialise entirely in the design and project management of buildings for animals but it has to work for people too. And it must help you attract and cater for the needs of clients or visitors.
Delivering an exceptional experience for everyone and helping you carry out your daily tasks and routines more efficiently is the core of a great veterinary or animal care building. We know how to make them work.
If you need to accommodate radiology and imaging equipment, include isolation facilities to manage infectious patients, introduce green technology, or find a space for a state of the art hydrotherapy facility, you are in safe hands.
