Nebraska Humane Society Judy Varner Adoption and Education Center
The Nebraska Humane Society’s vision is to upgrade facilities, increasing their capacity to care for and adopt out more animals. The Judy Varner Adoption and Education Center (JVAEC) consisted of renovating two existing buildings and adding two new structures. The first renovation was 10,000 SF of a single-story strip mall building to be used for offices. The second renovation was 37,000 SF of the current two-story JVAEC main building. The two buildings will be linked together by a newly constructed walking path that has conditioned space.
Demolition within both buildings included the removal of concrete slabs, existing utilities, walls, and ceilings. The west building was completed first to allow staff to move in while the main building was renovated.
