SPCA Dog Quarantine Complex
One of the notable but medium-sized projects recently completed is a building wing constructed for the Royal New Zealand SPCA in Canterbury. This new wing of the SPCA was designed for the quarantine of dogs and cats that have been mistreated and who need desperate or critical care. In the complex, there are 48 separate dog rooms, each with an external (easily forgiving) and internal area (for those animals still too timid to show themselves to the world), and 12 cat condos. Each animal has room to recover where they can get a chance to feel safe and get accustomed to their tenderly loving carers. They are kept cosy during the cooler winter months with heaters in each room and cool during the hotter months we all crave so much. The entire building is maintained at moderate to warm temperature with HVAC systems to ensure comfort to the animals and staff alike. There are veterinary and operating rooms to treat animals as soon as they come in. Storage rooms for medicines, food and areas to wash and clean dogs.
There were some trades that assisted with this construction who were amazing to deal with as was all SPCA staff who were accommodating during the entire construction. CMT Group was responsible for the entire construction, from earthworks, drainage, groundwork, foundations through to the construction and finishing.
