Orange County Animal Care Facility June Construction Update

June 27, 2017;

Exterior and interior construction continues for the Orange County Animal Care Facility.  In the last couple of months, we have seen huge progress of this fast-track, design build campus. Our focus during construction includes site visits to monitor the work being done, reviewing submittals and answering RFI’s.

At this point, glazing and roofing of the seven (7) primary buildings is nearly complete. Interior framing, mechanical, electrical and plumbing roughing is ongoing.  Finish work is scheduled to begin later in July.

The Orange County Animal Care facility is a seven acre campus that will serve fourteen surrounding cities and communities. We are excited for the next step in the construction process and look forward to bringing animals and people who care for them together in a nurturing and inspirational environment.
