Animal Services Facility
The County of San Luis Obispo’s Animal Services Division intakes more than 2,000 stray animals annually. After 43 years of service, deterioration of the existing animal services facility and cost of repairs indicated that it had come to the end of its useful life. With compromised accommodation for the animals they served, the County partnered with five local incorporated cities to construct a new animal services facility.
The County selected Cannon as part of a multidisciplinary team to complete the project. Cannon provided civil engineering, surveying, and landscape design services for the new facility project. Cannon’s scope of work included a topographic survey; civil site plans with calculations and reports for drainage, floodplain, and stormwater control; and landscape plans, including planting, irrigation, and construction details. As part of the permitting effort, Cannon produced a stormwater pollution prevention plan and application for a construction general permit via SMARTS system. Cannon also aided with construction specifications related to the scope of services provided, prepared record drawings, and reviewed contractor submittals responses to requests for information (RFIs). Cannon also provided a post-construction storm water maintenance and management plan to guide ongoing operation and maintenance.
The new, 16,000 square-foot facility is adjacent to Woods Humane Society and has sufficient dog and cat kennels as well as space needed to care for farm animals and reptiles. Located off Highway 1, the animal services facility is between San Luis Obispo and Cuesta College, on Kansas Avenue on the Central Coast of California.
