Rowan Animal Clinic
The doctors at Rowan Animal Clinic wanted to reinforce the rural nature of their growing animal practice while emphasizing the high technology at the core of modern veterinary medicine. In 2012 after their existing practice was destroyed in a tragic fire, RAC contacted Roger Layman to design their new state of the art facility.
As a veterinary clinic on the outskirts of a rural community, the Doctors served a variety of clients. The modern barn vernacular plays nicely with the landscape in rural Rowan County, NC and pleases the staff as well as clients. Roger led the design and construction of a 8,850sf facility for large and small animals. The hospital includes 8 exam rooms, a large treatment area with surgery suite, boarding kennel for 35 animals and offices for 5 doctors. Additionally, there’s a large animal treatment area for horses, dairy and exotic animals that allows trailers to pull through easily. Ultimately, the program of this building had to serve a wide range of clients. From small exotics and pocket pets, to bovine and equine areas, all the needs are met!
