Santa Clara County Animal Services Center

To accommodate the growing needs of the County, the new state-of-the-art, 24/7 Animal Services Center has been built to create an adequate living space for the animals. The new facility has the capacity to accommodate 54 dogs, 90 cats, and includes additional space for rabbits, horses, and goats. To house larger animals, a 2,500 square foot barn was built along the front side of the main building. BKF provided an analysis of existing site infrastructure, conceptual utility design to serve the new structure, and cost estimates for utility for the project.
