Andy Feth Feth: “Aside from the emotional aspect of the design, the facility needs to be constructed to account for each aspect of the shelter.”

EL CAJON, CA—The design and layout need to accommodate incoming and outgoing customers, with sensitivities for the many types of visitors—some may be adopting an animal, while others are anxious to pick up a lost pet, C.W. Driver Co.  project director Andy Feth tells GlobeSt.com. The construction firm recently broke ground on the El Cajon Animal Shelter here.

As Feth tells us, the new 10,900-square-foot facility will double the size of the current 50-year-old shelter and will include an innovative veterinary center, abundant housing for animals, pet-adoption services, administrative offices and more. In addition, the $9.3-million single-story shelter is funded by Proposition O special revenues, the half-cent sales tax increase approved by El Cajon voters in November of 2004 for improvements to public-safety facilities and a new animal shelter.
