New re-homing facility on an existing brown field farm site on the edge of Basildon comprising kennelling for assessment, isolation, sanctuary, and eventual re-homing purposes, including veterinary facilities, reception areas and public viewing areas together with on site staff accommodation.

MLM were appointed as Structural and Civil Engineering consultants to provide engineering advice on structure, roads and drainage and Section 278 road works to provide a new entrance to the site. MLM also provided geo-environmental advice in the form of geotechnical and contamination investigations.

The structure comprises a combination of lattice steel frame and masonry structures on traditional strip foundations on a sloping site with green roof construction. The buildings use state of the art Passiv Haus construction techniques to minimise energy consumption with biomass boilers and photovoltaic panel providing heat and power to the facility.
