Successful practice design comprises much more than a welcome and inviting interior and well thought-out workflow. Structural considerations are needed when planning or renovating your veterinary clinic to ease and eliminate stress for clients and their pets when they come through your doors. Concentrating design effort on minimising stress has the positive bonus of boosting staff morale and reducing clinic times.
Here’s what you can do:
High ceilings and natural light help mitigate what are poor acoustics for many animals
Your floor choice will have a significant impact on a pet’s comfort and stability; their idea of what is visually appealing and functional is very different to ours. Correct non-slip flooring with sound absorption will ensure they feel secure.
Species specific waiting areas with a visual block will give pets more security, and can be something as simple and inexpensive as planter boxes. These also provide a measure of sound absorption which significantly reduces the impact of a noisy clinic.
Just a few simple guidelines throughout the design process ensures your new or refurbished clinic is calm for both your clients and staff—providing a warm, welcoming and safe environment.
