Buxton are delighted to announce the completion of the ‘Keens Yard’ project for the world-famous Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Buxton are following up with the 'Kent Building', which is another amazing scheme there for a tremendous client and project team.
The project at Keens Yard involved the strip out, minor demolition and refurbishment of existing railway arches. Keen’s Yard will become the new entrance for this iconic animal rehoming charity with a landscaped courtyard for outdoor activities and limited car parking.
Steel frames were installed to form mezzanine floors to two of the arches to allow for office space, changing rooms, storage and a first aid room. A new public entrance, reception, show arena were also created, as well as a new hydrotherapy area which included entrance space, main pool, dog spa, water treadmill, plant room and shower areas.
Externally, façade works were carried out, new external water play and agility paddock areas created, installation of new retaining walls and perimeter fencing and hard and soft landscape works, including carpark refurbishment.
Buxton have begun works on our second project at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, the Kent Building, which involves the complete remodel and refurbishment of the existing re-homing kennels building. This includes the removal of the existing green pantiled roof and replacement with a black stained glulam timber framed structure to house new mechanical plant equipment.
