New opportunities for unwanted pets
Patiomaster recently supplied doors for an animal charity in Kent.
Last Chance Animal Rescue was founded in 1986 and its first premises were in Edenbridge. In 2012 it raised enough funds to acquire second premises – disused dog kennels in New Romney – and refurbishment took place over a period of three years as funds allowed, finally opening its doors in 2015.
The building contractor responsible for the refurbishment at New Romney was S&C Browne Building Services and the firm did such a good job that when Last Chance raised enough funds to build a second kennel block at the premises earlier this year, S&C Browne won this contract too.
The extension involved 30 kennels as well as all the other facilities needed by a charity that aims to provide medical care, food, shelter and love for all animals that come into its care and ultimately find them loving homes.
One of the requirements in the new extension was for 13 sliding patio doors in white. The doors were specified to maximise the amount of light in the building and provide a safer way less obtrusive to enter, exit and ventilate the building than standard doors or French doors.
S&C Browne turned to PatioMaster South East, which has been part of the PatioMaster network of local fabricators since 2002. It recently opened a new 4,500ft2 and is on track to increase productivity by 40%.
The doors for Last Chance were fabricated and installed as part of a complex construction timetable, and the extension to the centre was opened on schedule.
