History The first facility opened on Labor Day in 1978 providing after hours and weekend emergency veterinary care to the clients of the founding member doctors of the Chicago area. Over time the name was changed to Chicago Veterinary Emergency Services. After many years of working in a cramped 25 ft wide building and growing in emergency numbers every year, it was time to build a new facility. The building immediately to the north was bought and it and the original facility were torn down. Emergency services were provided in a trailer while the new facility was being built. CVES also offers specialty care in surgery, internal medicine, dermatology, dentistry, ophthalmology, imaging, neurology, cardiology and oncology, as well as 24/7 emergency care.

History This project began with an abandoned concrete block horse barn and stable that had not been used in several years. The building was controlled by the Veterinary Medical Research Park on the campus of Texas A&M University. The park needed a facility to conduct hoof disease research due the demolition of the existing facility for the construction of a new large animal clinic. Half the 6" block barn was demolished to provide for the two large laboratory spaces used to treat the horses. These are the high 18 ft. tall walls at the back of the facility. These are new reinforced 8" concrete block walls supporting a 2 ton rail crane used to removed fallen horses. The balance of the facility contains a new handicap restroom, three offices and a feed storage room. The stalls in the foreground were moved from an adjacent location and attached to corral the sick horses. The roof structure of the tall walls are of stressed skin foam core panels, 12" thick.

Our Design Philosophy

“The art of dancing stands at the source of all arts that express themselves first in the human person.  The art of building, or architecture, is the beginning of all the arts that lie outside the person; and in the end they all unite.” - Havelock Ellis
Building facilities unique to the owner’s special needs requires creative effort to balance function, aesthetics, durability and affordability in operation.  We help clients move through these challenges and manifest their dreams and desires in tangible form.
