Impact on Operations
Providing the best possible animal care means maximizing a facility’s operational efficiency and effectiveness. A well-designed animal care facility provides for the needs of animals while minimizing the cost of operations and maximizing staff effectiveness.
Studies have shown that noise pollution causes stress for both animals and people. Using sound absorbing materials where possible and creating distinct and separate zones to isolate sound is critical in a well-designed animal care facility.
Air Zones and Changes
Exhausting dirty air and providing plenty of new, clean air is critical to animal health. Creating separate air zones also helps eliminate cross contamination.
Cleaning Protocols and Systems
Effective wash-down systems, drain configurations and placement are critical to a well-designed facility. At Animal Arts we work closely with our clients to design unique systems that provide efficient cleaning that enhances a facility’s operational model.
Reducing Utility Costs
At Animal Arts we know the difficulties involved in designing a facility that considers day-to-day utility costs including HVAC systems, cleaning systems and water usage. We work with our clients to determine the life cycle costs of a project, balancing the initial costs with the long-term operational costs.
