About this project

We worked closely with the clients from initial design and feasibility through to construction & completion, delivering a state of the art vet clinic.

The clinic was designed and constructed with both practicality and aesthetics front of mind. It was important to ensure the premises would function for both clients, their pets and staff.  

The 623m2 clinic is made up of a large retail area, 3 consult rooms, 2 operating rooms, preparation rooms and meeting rooms. Attached to the clinic is a boarding cattery which can house up to 48 cats. 

A combination of cedar and standing seam gives the exterior a crisp architectural finish. The working areas of the clinic are finished in hardieglaze paneling to ensure hygiene is maintained and provides durability.

From our clients

Vetlife Ltd. have engaged Shore Construction for building work since 2014, due to the high quality of workmanship, professionalism, valued relationship, and the ease in which they make the entire building process. The Shore Construction carpentry and project teams throughout Canterbury, South Canterbury and Central Otago have always provided a quality service, from completing new commercial buildings, extensions/renovations, to small clinic improvements. No matter how big or small the job has been, the quality and attention to detail has always been of a very high standard and often completed to tight deadlines.
