As part of a large project to the MOD, the Defence Animal Centre in Melton Mowbray required over 200 new kennels over various phases.

Their requirements called for individual units to military standard JSP 315 scale 14, fitted to sub-frames complete with electrics (lights, heaters and extractors), with each being individually wired to an isolated bayonet socket.

Broxap completed each phase of the project/contract on time, to budget, bringing each phase of kennels into action to the desired timescale.

The kennels were installed onto new concrete foundations already prepared to Broxap detailed specifications and through good site management. Regular site visits by Broxap Contract Managers and consistent liaison with client and MOD end user ensured that the project completely satisfied the client and end user(s).

The Broxap Cosy Kennel System conforms to JSP 315 scale 14, and utilises hot dip galvanized steel and UPVC panels, to provide a uniform, long lasting and hardwearing structure.

Additional features such as rotating feeder bowls, UPVC face panels to sleeping units, sliding hatches together with internal mesh security gates and doors, ensure safe and controlled access to all areas of kennels so that caring for the animals and cleaning of facilities is significantly improved and efficient.

Broxap Cosy KennelsTM conform to JSP scale 14 regulations.
