Architectural & builder specific plans

You will need layout drawings to submit your planning/ zoning application.

You will need working drawings to give your builder for quotaions and for precise guidelines to build your kennels.

Building only Building only Option 1: Basic Building

Benefits of having the kitchen in the centre:

  • Breaks up the space - reduced disturbance to dogs (not walking past every kennel at meal or exercise times.) Less disturbance = less noise = less stress.

  • Separate areas for small & large dogs (comforts owners as well as dogs).

  • Allows just one section to be heated if kennels aren't full (saves costs).

  • Allows just one section to be cleaned quickly (useful if showing clients around, or when new dogs admitted.

  • Reduces stress & noise - smaller numbers of dogs in an area is one of the best ways to reduce noise, and dogs are not directly overlooking each other.

Go to Building + WalkwayGo to Building + Walkway Option 2: Basic Building + Walkway

Having a secure covered walkway is useful for:

  • Security - security around an individual building
    (this is a consideration if you have a large site & cannot afford to provide secure fencing around the whole site).

  • Extended exercise run cover - Provides additional cover over the corridor, which provides better protection over the exercise runs.

  • Protection against hot/cold extremes - Easy to provide temporary weather protection (blinds) for winter/summer or extremes of hot or cold temperature.

  • Noise - The walkway could be made of mesh, glass or a glass & block/brick walls if noise is of major issue.

Bringing your dream to life...

Photo-realistic 3D visualisation & motivation aids

Planning/zoning find these useful to visualise what you have in mind. Remember, their knowledge will be limited to poorer standard kennels that result in lots of noise. You need to be the expert here.

Our 3D visualisations will bring your dream to life for everyone involved! They can be used for your:

  • Planning/ Zoning department
  • Builder/Architect

They are also useful for showing customers what you are building and on your marketing materials while your kennels are beings built. They can be used for your:

  • Future customers
  • Website, advertising, brochures, leaflets, flyers & business cards

Our 3D images depict the basic building only (no walkway or extra room shown as this gives the clearest view of the main building).

    Building Specification   Kennel Building Specification

Building Specification

Builder quotes/tender and construction guidance.

Ideal for when you are ready to start getting quotations for labour & materials and start building.

Tells you how to build using our kennel specifications (most importantly helping your builder avoid common & expensive kennel-building mistakes due to lack of kennel facility experience) and how to price up the cost of your kennels accurately.

Helps save you a great deal of money and research time on materials/ products/ comparing quotations.

Priceless reassurance & support for your project.

Get accurate builder quotations and avoid common and costly kennel-building mistakes made by builders

The Building Specification helps ensure the kennel owner has a full list of costs, price variations & standards required up front. You will then have a detailed breakdown of what the build will cost, how long it will take, where responsibilities lie, and the standard to which the kennels should be built.

Builders are often unaware of just how robust and specialised a kennel building needs to be.

This building specification will help to ensure those areas are all covered.

What to Do Next

10 Step Guide on what to do once you have kennel blueprints.

Helps ensure you have covered all requirements before commencing work.



Preliminaries Specification (for Quotations)

Preliminaries are considerations which are not part of the building work itself, but may have implications for you and the building contractor.

Preliminaries include costs & considerations to be decided before, or in preparation of your kennels build - such as access, bathroom facilities, water supply, electricity, materials storage, security, plant & equipment. If the building contractor is to provide any preliminary items this must be agreed in their pricing.

Used with: Price Summary (below)


Construction Specification (for Quotations)

A Construction Specification or Brief includes details of the work required to build your kennels and the materials to be used.

Although a great deal of this information will be shown on drawings, it is still advisable to explain workmanship & quality requirements.

Many disputes in domestic construction work are about what should have been included in the building contractor’s price. A detailed Brief/Specification will avoid most of these building problems and ensure that when you are comparing contractors’ quotations, they are pricing the same thing.

Used with: Price Summary (below)


Price/Quotation Summary EXCEL SPREADSHEET

Summary of the cost of building your kennels, an easy reference for you & your builder.

Helps give you an easy comparison between different builder quotations & ensure they are like-for-like and haven't missed anything out now, which will be a surprise later!

Building Contractors should break down their price for several reasons:

  • A summary is useful when comparing competing prices
  • Some items can be omitted or altered to suit your budget
  • It can show where contractors allow for different things
  • It makes calculation of staged payments easier
  • It makes pricing any additional work easier

How are we able to offer such a great price?

David has expert knowledge and many years of experience, so there is no 'learning curve' for him in the way that there will be for architects and designers who have not built kennels or veterinary hospitals before. Our blueprints are purchased by many owners in different countries, to be adapted and decorated by each individual to suit, therefore the cost is shared.
