Prince William County has Grand Opening for New Animal Services Center
WDP was in attendance for the grand opening of Prince William County's new Animal Services Center. The event, which took place on Saturday - September 17, marks the beginning of a new era for the animal shelter as the previous shelter was 45 years-old and unable to accommodate the County's growing population. The new center is a modern, 27,000+ SF facility that features a two-stall, medical-grade barn for livestock, four outdoor play yards for dogs, a community cat room, multiple smaller outdoor play areas, individually ventilated cat condos, as well as separate housing areas for our feathered and even our reptilian friends. The Center also features an upgraded HVAC system to reduce airborne diseases and a veterinarian suite for surgeries and advanced medical care for animals. Having provided the design-phase geotechnical investigation in 2017 and as Geotechnical Engineer of Record and consultant to Cole and Denny during construction, WDP is thrilled to see the results of the project teams' hard work on a wonderful new facility for our furry, feathery (and scaly) friends!
