About

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.

Specialisms

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.

We’ve been involved in a number of projects that have won awards, in part due to our role in their design and project management.    

Constantly adding to our skills and becoming part of the veterinary and animal welfare community is really important to us.

We have a number of professional accreditations and memberships, extending across the building, architecture and animal welfare sectors.
