Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine – Building Renewal
535 Boston Post Road
Guilford, CT 06437
After 40 years of serving the community, Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine decided it was due time to open a second location in Guilford, CT. The new facility, a former restaurant, is located at 535 Boston Post Road in Guilford. Munger was hired to convert the 5,000 SF structure into a fully functional referral and emergency veterinary hospital.
The building renewal project was orchestrated by Mike Cormier Jr., Project Manager, Mike Buydos, Project Supervisor and Jeff Brown, Estimator. Due to the existing floor plan, the Munger team was required to perform selective demolition on the interior and framed partitions in order to create new spaces for the front lobby, reception area, X-Ray, O.R., exam and treatment rooms. With the altered floor plan, new plumbing and medical gas connections were installed in the exam rooms, allowing employees to effectively perform veterinary services. Additional interior work involved the installation of new flooring and doors throughout the building and a paint job of all rooms.
Exterior renovation was also necessary to convert the outdated restaurant into a state-of-the-art veterinary hospital. Landscaping was performed, including the clearing and fence installment of an outside area for animals to exercise. Other improvements involved an exterior paint job, parking lot expansion and new outside lighting. Munger Construction was pleased to gain further experience within
the veterinary industry and help Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine to expand their services to the Shoreline!
