Watertown Animal Hospital Renovation/Addition
Client: Watertown Animal Hospital | Location: Watertown, NY | Completion Date: 2018 | Services Provided: Architectural, Engineering (Structural & Civil/Site), Land Surveying
The Watertown Animal Hospital L.L.P. is a full-service, NYSVMS accredited veterinary medical facility offering quality veterinary care to pets and farm animals in Jefferson county, including Fort Drum and other nearby areas.
The renovation/addition to the original building built in the 1970’s was facilitated to add more space to include separate entrance and reception areas for dogs and cats, four exam rooms and accessible bathrooms for clients, updated kennel rooms and larger treatment area, and a new surgery room equipped with natural lighting.
Careful planning and coordination from the design through the construction phase was performed to allow the hospital to be fully operational during construction. The new entry from the exterior offers an inviting, light filled, modern entrance into the hospital for patrons. Improvements to the existing building envelope were completed to include spray insulation, siding, and exterior finishes. An expanded parking area was designed which included drainage and utility improvements, a new entry, additional parking, handicap access, and improved traffic circulation.
Aubertine and Currier delivered Architectural Design Services which included measuring and drawing up the existing floor plan and building elevations, development of a schematic plan to meet the expanding business needs, and construction documents. A structural evaluation of the building shell was performed. An Environmental Survey was completed to locate possible hazardous materials present in the building. Civil/Site Engineering included site planning review and approvals with the City of Watertown for the design of the parking lot, drainage, utility improvements, and landscaping. Land Surveying services included boundary survey, legal research, topographic, and utility survey mapping.
