Louisiana SPCA

The Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals consists of a 22,000 square foot metal building with roughly 85,000 square feet of site paving. The building is a state of the art facility that is used to provide shelter, medical care and the chance for a pet to be adopted into a family. The building also contains a very impressive HVAC system that allows each dog kennel to have its own exhaust system. This exhaust system helps draw fresh air into the kennel which helps with odor control and sanitation. A urethane flooring system was also used in the kennel areas to help control sanitation. This floor system is non-porous and chemical resistant. The facility also contains areas for cats, such an adoption room equipped with cat condos, a cat iso room, and a feral room. There are 7 exercise yards on the outside of the facility that are used to let the animals exercise and allow potential owners to play with the animal they might adopt.

The project received an ASHRAE Technology Award for the Southern Region of the US in the category of New Commercial. This 1st place award was presented to MCC Group. In addition, architect Eskew+Dumez+Ripple was recognized for this project in New Orleans Magazine’s Best of Architecture Issue. Woodward would like to congratulate these outstanding partners on making this project such a resounding success!
