Working with CVS Group, the UK’s largest veterinary group, we designed a scheme for the conversion of premises in Sheldon, Birmingham, to form a new clinic for YourVets.
The building, originally a public house but having been used in recent years as a car showroom, is now barely recognisable on the inside. Through careful subdivsion and alteration we have been able to produce a clinic featuring a bright and airy front of house with separate waiting areas for dogs and cats as well as all the necessary clinical support spaces including:
- Six consultation rooms
- Separate wards for dogs and cats
- Clinical prep and laboratory areas
- Operating theatres for general surgery and dental procedures
- X-ray and imaging
- Administrative offices
- Staff facilities
The new use required a high standard of servicing to ensure adequate lighting, full mechanical ventilation and air conditioning, whilst finishes were required to be both hard wearing and hygienic. The X-ray room is also fully lead lined, including the door and specialist shielded glazing.
Coming together in only 14 weeks on site the client was able to begin operating from the site in time for Christmas.
