The Brewerstreet Dairy unit is now completed. Our proposals were to refurbish an existing industrial shed into a new specialist veterinary unit, linked to an adjacent office building.
Brewerstreet starts on site with an anticipated completion of November 2008. Our clients have identified this building and the adjacent office as being suitable to serve as a new centre for their specialist veterinary surgery. The business currently shares space with a GP veterinary service at the Village Animal Hospital, Guards Avenue, Coulsdon Road, Caterham, Surrey CR3 5ZD.
The specialist service has proved so successful that the current space is proving restrictive for the practice’s development and expansion.
However, whilst the existing industrial unit is unlikely to present a public face, the veterinary service requires members of the public and their cats and dogs to visit the unit. Therefore, as part of the proposed change of use we are proposing amendments to the existing façade to reflect the nature of the business inside.
