Associated Architects have submitted plans for a new purpose-built “dog rescue and welfare centre”:http://www.www.associated-architects.co.uk/projects/community/birmingham-dogs-home/ on the outskirts of Solihull. The project sits in a 12.45 acre site of peaceful, semi-rural land, creating a stress free environment for the lost and abandoned dogs. The building is designed to rigorous Passive design strategy and aims to achieve a BREEAM â€˜Excellentâ€™ rating.
Associated Architects’ director Matthew Goer said:
_â€œThe new Dogsâ€™ Home is a sustainable, innovative building, thatâ€™s going to make a huge difference to the work of the charity, rescuing and rehoming abandoned dogs. We have consulted extensively with the planners and local community to develop proposals that sit sensitively in their rural setting and ensure sustainability of the charity in the delivery of its core objectives.â€_
