Northeast Valley Animal Care Center
This project consisted of constructing a new Northeast Valley Animal Services Center. The new 47,300 square foot facility consists of a public lobby, dog kennels, cat cages, medical facilities, spay/neuter clinic, conference/training rooms, and administrative areas. The facility also provides shelter and humane care for sick, injured, stray, and unwanted animals to serve the community of Mission Hills and its surrounding communities. The work also involved outdoor exercise yards, public and staff parking, walkways, landscaping, underground utilities and off-site road improvements.
This shelter was designed in the Mission Revival Style; its forms and details are very carefully derived from elements of the San Fernando Mission, as well as the parkscape across from the Mission. As the area evolves, this shelter, along with the San Fernando Mission and park to the east, will set a tone for future architecture and lead to the development of a consistently themed area.
