National pet store chain Animates was planning to expand into the Southland market by opening an outlet in Invercargill. Once plans were articulated and set forth in a building programme, the project was open to builders that could translate these specific requirements into a finished project.
We were awarded the 809m2 project, which was comprised of a 683m2 section devoted to the client Animates, itself. This part of the project included a veterinary clinic, in-house grooming facility and standard pet shop. In addition, dedicated rooms devoted to Animates’ fish and bird collections, along with a self-service dog bathing facility, were also part of the build.
Additional space for a second tenant, earmarked to be an adjacent café was also slated as part of the project.
