120 W. C STREET PORT POLICE K9 FACILITY
This proposed 2,000 square feet building is a police dog kennel facility for the Port of Los Angeles Police. AVA worked with both the Port of Los Angeles Harbor Department and the Police Department to understand the very specific needs of these highly-trained animals, and to provide an economical facility that can be built to the Port’s tight schedule. The building houses fourteen dog runs, including indoor and outdoor spaces, and a grooming room and storage room. The building is intended to be passively cooled for most of the year due to its proximity to the ocean, but also has mechanical cooling and heating for those times when needed.
