We are proud to announce that one of our most recent projects, Placer County Animal Shelter, achieved LEED Gold Certification by the USGBC.
Wood Rodgers prepared plans for this $13.5 million LEED Gold, state-of-the-art animal shelter that is located in Placer County’s government center. This previously undeveloped site sits atop a merten cap, providing significant grading, drainage and planting challenges that are being overcome by sophisticated drainage methods that integrate building and site, and also rely on a series of swales and a large detention basin adjacent to the site.
Considerable attention was taken into consideration to focus on the customer experience, with space being dedicated for community led dog agility training, cat adoption, and outdoor education and event space. Accommodations were made for large animals with a barn and pasture, secured at the rear of the site to deter animal repatriation.
