Branford Veterinary Hospital – New Construction
125 N Branford Road
Branford, CT 06405
Since 1937, Branford Veterinary Hospital (BVH) has been committed to providing the highest quality veterinary care. They have also been in the same building since the inception of the business in 1937. After considerable business growth over the last decade, BVH selected a new location that would allow for considerably more space.
Munger was hired to construct the approximately 5,818 SF two story, wood framed building, conveniently located down the street, at 125 North Branford Road in Branford. The new facility features four exam rooms, cat and dog waiting areas, a radiology room, glass enclosed medical wards, an indoor exercise area and three doctor’s offices in order to allow BVH to perform their wide array of veterinary services.
Michael Cormier headed up the project as Project Manager and James DeMaio executed Project Supervisor duties. This project incorporated a unique, “Colonial Salt Box”, farmhouse design. As BVH owner Scott Gavaletz, D.V.M. explained, “The old farm property has been a landmark in town for over one hundred years. We wanted to continue the legacy, so we modeled the hospital after the original farmhouse.” The facility incorporates farmhouse themes, ranging from wood beamed ceilings to a farm-style design waiting room. The Munger team found it particularly exciting to merge all the amenities of a state-of-the-art vet hospital into a rustically aesthetic Colonial Salt Box farmhouse.
