The current Coronado Animal Care Facility (ACF) was opened in May 2010. Thanks to the support of PAWS, the ACF has plenty of light-filled space, where cats and dogs can freely interact with visitors and volunteers, play, eat and sleep while they await adoption.
Client: City of Coronado
Project Value: $1.6M
Gafcon provided construction management and constructability review services for City of Coronado Animal Care Facility. The project involved the demolition of an existing parking lot adjacent to the Coronado Ferry Landing Marketplace and construction of a new 3,400 square foot single-story concrete masonry building. The facility houses a variety of functional spaces including seven dog adoption areas, three cat community rooms, holding areas, quarantine areas, examination/treatment area, a “get acquainted” room, food preparation space, grooming room and exterior dog exercise yard.
The facility was built to the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Silver certification standards, incorporating a variety of sustainable elements including energy- and water-efficient fixtures, natural lighting, recycled building materials and construction waste recycling.
PAWS of Coronado was awarded the contract to manage the ACF effective November 1, 2014.
