Animal Care Building - DIFE

Drogheda Institute of Further Education

Twenties, Drogheda, Co. Louth

Due to growing demand, Animal Care courses have been ongoing at the Drogheda Institute of Further Education for a number of years with classes taking place in less than adequate accommodation.

We were therefore commissioned by the Institute to design and oversee the construction of an Animal Care building consisting of 3 classrooms. One classroom is specifically designed to cater for the needs of both animals and carers alike.

This room has a hard wearing floor, wet and dry areas, grooming stations, automated animal baths and a powerful ventilation system.

The building is situated to connect with existing circulatory zones and seeks to enhance the already strong architecture of the parent building.
