Fit ‘n’ Furry

Petaluma, California

From the very beginning of the project, the owners of Fit ‘n’ Furry had the goal of becoming the first certified “Green Commercial Remodel” in Petaluma. The building was formerly a 17,000 square foot, DHL Delivery distribution facility and needed to be transformed into a pet boarding, grooming, and training facility. Green Building Architects served as consultant and green points rater for the project

But major achievements were made in sorting and recycling construction waste, greatly improving energy efficiency and indoor air quality, and conserving water. Some of the improvements included:

This project succeeded in becoming the very first commercial building to be recognized under Petaluma's new Green Building Program. Grant and Marci Garl, owners of Fit ‘n’ Furry, make regular public appearances speaking about their project and their “Green Business.” They have even been featured on KPIX Channel 5's program “Eye on the Bay,” in which they describe some of the renovations.
