AWC-constructed animal shelter to open Saturday

A new animal shelter for the City of Jacksonville will open officially Aug. 8. It was constructed by Auld & Whiteawclogo Constructors (AWC) and its design partner, Ebert Normal Brady Architects. AWC completed its work on the new facility in June and brought the project in on time and on budget.

When the certification process is completed in September, the facility is slated to become Jacksonville’s first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold-Certified structure.

Grand opening ceremonies for the new shelter will feature remarks by Mayor John Peyton, City Council Member Warren Jones and AWC president Ed White. A vendor and animal-adoption fair will round out the festivities.
