Hillcrest Clinic Exterior

Hillcrest Animal Hospital, Simpsonville, SC

Hillcrest Animal Hospital is a 5-Exam Room, 5,523 SF small animal facility on 3.23 acre parcel in suburban Greenville SC, constructed in 2005 with a general construction contract of $162/SF. Special features include indirectly lit, vaulted ceilings and built-in display/adoption cages in the Waiting Room, a separate Children’s Waiting Area, runs with heated floors, drive-through prescription window, and glassed-in Surgery Room. Challenges included a site sloping away from road requiring a septic pumping system to connect to public sewer line, an extreme quantity of subsurface rock removal, a sizable storm water retention basin to handle surface water runoff before entering a sensitive streambed.
