The Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital, Cambridge

Saunders Boston Architects has been working on projects for the Department of Clinical Veterinary Medicine, in the University of Cambridge for over 2 decades.

In that time we have designed and managed several new buildings, refurbished and rationalised many existing facilities and carried out feasibility studies to assist with briefing and fundraising appeals.

This has provided Saunders Boston Architects with an invaluable insight to new developments in research, teaching and clinical practice in the veterinary field.

The latest project, rationalisation of the Small Animal Hospital, involved a combination of new build extensions and alterations of existing buildings (some of which we designed ourselves 10 years earlier). The accommodation provided includes new consulting rooms, imaging facilities, testing laboratories, an innovative Clinical Skills Teaching Lab and alterations to the small animal operating theatres.

The project was executed in a ‘live’ environment, on a very restricted site requiring detailed consideration of the sequencing and close liaison with the hospital staff.
