Modular build construction was used for this project, with cost in mind to achieve a higher quality of design within budget than with a traditional build. It also helped minimise disruption for the RSPCA Radcliffe team by being able to lift the sections in. However, we wanted to maintain the aesthetic of a traditional build by incorporating roof lights along the ridge of the building, which created a light and airy interior. We also added quirky design details such as backlit animal cut-out shapes on the front of the building and paw prints embedded into the floor to guide visitors.
Ella Carpenter, Centre Manager:
"We’re so pleased with how it has come together. It’s a high-quality building with lots of impressive architectural features. Most importantly, the new building will enable us to do even more to deliver on our core purpose to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals and promote education about animal welfare."
