Biscoe Pet Hospital
Bisco Pet Hospital was a renovation of an existing 2,223 sf bank building turning it into a new veterinary practice. Special care was taken to fit a rather large scope of work, that usually would take 3,000 sf or more, into this existing space. The design also had to work around the existing bank vault that now is used as the Doctor’s office and controlled drug storage.
The existing outdated bank lobby is now an inviting reception / waiting area. Where the existing conference room and offices were, now includes the 3 exam rooms and a laundry room. The back line and teller area now houses the new treatment area and pharmacy. The x‐ray room, isolation room, surgery and recovery kennel areas now occupy the area where there was a large meeting room. The original break-room and bathrooms didn’t change from their original location but underwent a great deal of cosmetic improvement. The original double wythe exterior brick walls can still be seen throughout the practice with a fresh coat of paint. The exterior of the bank also received a coat of paint to modernize the dark and dull brick that donned the exterior for so many years. The final touch to the face lift includes composite fiber planks framing the entrance and providing the backdrop for the practice’s signature silhouette logo. From old, tired and worn‐out to modern, clean and fresh, this building now houses a thriving Veterinary practice that both employees and clients enjoy.
