New Kennelling and Cattery Facility, Wheal Alfred Farm 2006

National Animal Welfare Trust – Wheal Alfred Farm

This was our first centre to include a wind turbine, solar water heating, heat recovery, recycled rainwater (for wash-down, laundry and toilet flushing) and a sewage treatment plant, along with locally sourced timber for the manager’s log cabin accommodation. This centre demonstrates how this type of specialist facility can be truly considered a ‘green’ development.  Wheal Alfred Farm is a kennelling

New Cattery, Heaven's Gate 2006

National Animal Welfare Trust – Heaven’s Gate

Heaven’s Gate is part of a former agricultural and livestock farm now used for re-homing dogs, cats, horses, cows, goats and small furries. Our brief for this project was to create a bespoke cattery in keeping with this traditional rural setting using materials similar to those at Wheal Alfred Farm to create a corporate feel to

New Centre Build, Dublin 2006

Dogs Trust – Dublin

This facility for Dogs Trust in Dublin was finished, not only on time but on budget and to an exceptionally high standard. It is clearly one of the best dog rehoming facilities in the world.   The project includes a number of state-of-the-art features such as electric opening hatches for dogs, full glazed-in stainless steel compartments for the animals,

Redevelopment of rehoming centre, Ilfracombe 2010

Dogs Trust – Ilfracombe

We were appointed by Dogs Trust to redevelop their existing rehoming centre at West Down, Ilfracombe, in Devon.  All of the kennel blocks were in a poor state of repair and in need of either replacement or refurbishment.  Additional external runs were also needed to improve well-being for the dogs by giving them greater access

Redevelopment of Animal Shelter, St. Helier 2008

JSPCA – Animal Shelter

This was one of the most difficult projects we’ve ever handled – being on the very tight site at the JSPCA centre in St Helier, Jersey. Those who know the site are aware of its restrictions, including limited access and being built on a hill, immediately adjacent to a children’s nursery. The confines of the

New Equine Hospital and Office Facility, Liphook 2009

Liphook Equine Hospital

What is now known as the Liphook Equine Hospital started life as a purely equine practice in the 1970s and grew steadily both as a specialist equine practice and as an equine hospital until, in 2009, the partners decided to embark on a large capital rebuilding programme.  By this stage the practice had evolved into

Blue Cross Renovations, Southampton 2011

Blue Cross – Southampton

We were delighted to be invited back again some ten years after our second phase of work at the Blue Cross Southampton. The main works entailed converting old kennels into a state of the art veterinary facility and holding areas, with new UPVC kennelling for dogs and cats. An isolation wing was also refurbished, and extensions were

Training & Exhibition Centre and Post & Store, Chelwood Gate 2005

Cats Protection – Chelwood Gate

We were commissioned to project manage the refurbishment and fit-out to the Training and Exhibition Centre at the headquarters of Cats Protection. On the first floor a high quality and high specification lecture and training facility was formed, with adaptable spaces for between 10 – 80 people, with first class audio-visual installations and adaptable environmental controls

New Centre Build, Brands Hatch 2000

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home – Brands Hatch

This challenging and exciting scheme made the best possible use of a difficult site.  BDCH had purchased a larger plot of land in a neighbouring field, which was level and perfect for a new building, however, we were unable to obtain permission to build in this field as it generally moved the centre closer to
