BHB designed a new two-story, 10,000 SF animal hospital, clinic and boarding facility in the City of Fort Worth’s museum district. The first floor provides separate dog boarding and grooming areas. The second floor provides boarding for cats and “exotic” animals, such as birds. The second floor also includes a full veterinary clinic with exam rooms, radiology room and operating room. The mechanical design provided two, 100 percent outside air packaged rooftop units to meet the International Mechanical Code ventilation requirements. 

The second floor has high ceilings in the main lobby, exam rooms and pharmacy area. Second floor ductwork was concealed in all areas. Plumbing design includes full restroom facilities on both floors, as well as numerous floor drains and wash-down hose stations in the animal kennel areas. Due to the number and arrangement of floor drains, a combination waste/vent system was designed. Light fixtures are controlled by motion sensors and a timeclock controlled relay system. Signal design included raceways for data and telephone systems.
