Animal Shelter Design from an Engineering Perspective

With dogs and cats coming to and from a shelter every single day, it is crucial to keep the air clean and the spaces habitable to reduce the stress of the animals, as well as prevent the transfer of diseases and bacteria. While implementing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems for animal shelters can be very technical, it is worth the time and money to provide comfortable living spaces for the animals.

This white paper will delve into the requirements for designing a shelter, how to keep shelter environments healthy and safe, and the technical aspects of a mechanical, HVAC, and plumbing arrangement.
