Last Chance Animal Rescue is a Kent charity that rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs.
The charity was founded in 1986 and its first premises were in Edenbridge. In 2012 it raised enough funds to acquire second premises, disused dog kennels in New Romney and refurbishment took place over a period of three years as funds allowed, finally opening its doors in 2015.
The building contractor responsible for the refurbishment at New Romney was S&C Browne Building Services Ltd and the firm did such a good job that when Last Chance raised enough funds to build a second kennel block at the premises earlier this year, S&C Browne won this contract too.
The extension involved 30 kennels as well as all the other facilities needed by a charity that aims to provide medical care, food, shelter and love for all animals that come into its care and ultimately find them loving homes.
One of the requirements in the new extension was for 13 sliding patio doors in white. The doors were specified to maximise the amount of light in the building and provide a safer way less obtrusive to enter, exit and ventilate the building than standard doors or French doors.
For Simon Browne, Director of S&C Building Services, there was only one brand he was willing to trust with the work: PatioMaster and his local dealer, PatioMaster South East.
PatioMaster sliding patio doors are renowned for being secure, thermally efficient, reliable and stylish and are amongst the most highly specified and rigorously tested in the market place, which makes them perfect for commercial projects such as this one. Each door is precision made to measure by one of a network of fabricators carefully selected for its expertise and attention to detail.
PatioMaster South East has been part of the PatioMaster network of local fabricators since 2002 and has been going from strength to strength ever since. It recently opened a new 4,500 square feet custom-built factory and is on track to increase productivity by 40%.
The doors for Last Chance were fabricated and installed smoothly as part of a complex construction timetable and the extension to the centre was opened on schedule. Simon Browne commented: “Last Chance are pleased with their new kennels and they are helping them help more animals than ever before. It was a very worthwhile project to work on and we are proud to have been involved.”
