Wayne Veterinary Hospital
Goldsboro, North Carolina
With the city of Goldboro, North Carolina
experiencing growth in the direction of the current Wayne
Veterinary Hospital, the Owners felt it was time to modernize
their practice and take advantage of this growth. The father/son
team of Dr.s George Silver contacted HDA Architects at the
Baltimore Veterinary Conference with their ideas and vision.
The Silver's existing
building was an antiquated, small building. Their advantage
though was the large piece of land on which it was sitting.
HDA had to design a new building that would take advantage
of this property, yet allow the existing building to continue
to operate during construction. By designing the future
parking in 2 separate phases, HDA was able to build and
open the new building in phase 1, then demolish the old
building and complete all parking in phase 2.
The new facility incorporates
2 floors, with all hospitalization on the main floor. The
second floor contains all human resources and staff offices,
as well as a conference room & overnight quarters. Also
included upstairs is a large attic space that is designed
to accommodate a large boarding kennel. An elevator shaft
was also constructed as to easily be upgraded to a function
system once the Owners decide to fit out the future boarding.
The main floor has a
large, bright Surgery Suite, adjacent to a similar Special
Procedures room. The large, open Treatment easily serves
both these rooms, as well as allowing staff to monitor a
Recovery Ward. All surgical areas, including Treatment,
are serviced by an Oxygen Generator and separate Scavenger
system. 4 large Exam Rooms serve clients, all with dedicated
computer and audio visual stations. All parts of the building
are conditioned by a complex and heavily filtered HVAC system
to eliminate any bacteria and odors that come with such

different phases of construction.
