The City of Lethbridge refurbished the Animal Shelter to improve the lives of animals. Interior updates were made using a brighter, more engaging colour palette. This created a warm and inviting atmosphere to showcase the animals and encourage their adoption. The refurbishment was made with durability and practicality in mind as the finishes and millwork were upgraded with more sanitary and substantial designs. SAinc is most proud of the acoustic dampening effect achieved through the installation of diffusers which greatly improved the environment for both people and animals. These antibacterial and easily washable diffusers were designed by SAinc specifically for the Animal Shelter. Their installation instantly converted the decibel level of the dog kennel rooms from the level of a jet engine to that of a loud conversation.
