Haven – The Dog Spot: Marietta, Georgia

This project involved turning an old bar and restaurant into a state of the art dog kennel and rescue facility.  At almost 6000 square feet, the facility has plenty of kennels, a large group play area for the dogs along with grooming and an area for medical evaluation.  An outdoor play area is also available.

One design challenge on this project was noise control to the adjacent tenants.  To accomplish this we designed a double wall with a 3″ air space between them and each wall containing batt insulation.

 

Good Mews – Marietta, Georgia

Good Mews offers an alternative to traditional animal shelters in the Metro-Atlanta area by providing a no-kill, cage-free haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats until placing them in permanent, loving homes. Good Mews promotes public awareness regarding the value of pets, animal welfare, pet overpopulation, and quality human-animal companionship through education and outreach programs. Good Mews is one of the few virtually cage-free, no-kill cat shelters in the state of Georgia. Since 1988, Good Mews has placed over 6,800 cats in permanent homes.

The organization purchased an old dog kennel facility and we helped to design an upgrade the exterior and a revised plan to help them smoothly continue their mission.
