Conferences and Events

Building Design for Animals

BDA Architecture, PC is a firm proud to share our experience and expertise with veterinarians and those involved in animal care facilities. Every year BDA speaks at some of the nation’s largest animal conferences, including the North America Veterinary Conference, Southwest Veterinary Symposium, and the CVC Hospital Design Conference. We have also presented internationally, including AVEPA in Spain and BSAVA in England.

With topics ranging from material selection to exam room design, and managerial subjects like getting your money's worth during construction and staying in business while remodeling or renovating, BDA offers sessions to help owners and veterinarians make good decisions for their facilities.

The offered Q&A sessions are a great chance to 'ask an architect' questions about animal care facility design, and BDA also hosts a booth at many of the conferences we attend; providing an opportunity for one on one meetings with any and all who wish to stop by. We recently added the OVMA conference in Toronto this year to allow easier access for our Canadian clients.

The partners at BDA also provide articles for publications like Veterinary Economics, DVM360.com, and Veterinary Practice News on a regular basis.

BDA speaks at and/or attends many of the Veterinary, Shelter and Boarding shows across the United States and internationally. Please stop by to talk with us the next time we are in your area.
