Mountainside Animal Hospital is a unique 11,000 square foot veterinary facility and animal shelter in North Vancouver, British Columbia. This was built by a private veterinary client who wanted to give the community sophisticated veterinary services while providing veterinary care to abandoned animals and adoption services. The site was very challenging, it is on a very limited parcel that is entirely circled by major roads and a highway. The solution was to develop a three-story building with parking at the grade level, the veterinary hospital on the main floor, and the shelter on the top level. Three-story animal facilities are very rare but this allowed for enough space for parking and limited dog walking while still providing adequate separation and separate mechanical systems for the veterinary services relative to the shelter animals.
