Contract type / period : JCT Intermediate Contract / approx six months
The brief for the dog runs entailed replacing an existing facility, incorporating the need to open up the runs for public viewing whilst retaining access for staff use. The public routes are delineated by the canopies, clad in aluminium, with semi-circular brick glazed openings for viewing the runs. The runs are covered with artificial grass which is hygienic and hard wearing. Careful thought was given to the design of the runs which had to have privacy screening between the runs to prevent the dogs from becoming agitated. The total area of the dog runs is 1,255 m². The steel work was left in natural galvanised finish which matched the aluminium canopies.
