Plan and build your veterinary hospital or boarding kennel with guidance from the best!
Architect and engineer E. John Knapp, a specialist in animal facility planning and design and founder of Knapp Schmidt Architects LLC, provides you with a path from concept to execution.
Start with location, using Knapp's demographic market study to identify and evaluate the best site according to competition, potential income clients, financial analysis, and practice value.
Determine whether your blueprints are budget-driven or market-driven, and why the distinction is so important. Assess your floor plan's traffic flow and overall efficiency, applying modular room planning criteria to both small and large-animal facilities.
Information-rich appendices include construction team flow chart, questionnaires, lists of materials acceptable for construction, and floor plans for a variety of small-animal hospitals, mixed-animal hospitals, equine hospitals, pet hotels, pet boarding kennels and pet spas!
