Knoebel Construction has completed construction of new veterinary hospitals built within existing Petco locations in St. Peters, Missouri; Omaha, Nebraska and Manhattan, Kansas. Knoebel also has been selected to add veterinary hospitals within three additional Petco stores in the Las Vegas area. Each 1,500 to 2,000-square-foot veterinary clinic features a reception area, four examination rooms, x-ray room, surgery room and waiting room.
As part of the construction projects, Knoebel relocated existing spaces to accommodate the new clinic. The primary project challenge was completing construction within a fully operational store. The Knoebel Construction team completed the first few weeks of demolition and construction in the evening after normal business hours to avoid disruption. The architects for the projects were SBLM and GPD Group. The new veterinary clinics at Petco offer a range of medical services for pets, including routine exams, minor surgery, x-rays and vaccinations.
