The Placer County Animal Services Center is a new two-story facility with approximately 30,000 square feet of building and exterior covered spaces, designed to be welcoming to the public and promote animal health and well being. The top ﬂoor functions as workspace for Animal Control and kennel staﬀ, while the ﬁrst ﬂoor is designed to accommodate the public, animal and veterinary needs.
As the project manager, Vanir’s team worked closely with the County’s project lead to ensure cohesive management from the onset of the project. We ﬁlled a vital role in eﬀective project communications, serving as the conduit between the contractor, the owner and the subconsultants. A wide variety of experts from Vanir were on-site during all stages of construction – BIM experts performed site walks to conﬁrm that the 3D model was up-to-date with ﬁeld conditions; electrical professionals reviewed the electrical rough-in on the jobsite prior to the facility walls being closed in; and our energy expert checked the eﬃciency of the building systems on-site to ensure that the highest standard levels were met and functioning as designed.
