RE: Renovation of Pet Kennels

Dumb question perhaps but what is a building envelope?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Building_envelope
"The building envelope (or building enclosure) is the physical separator between the interior and the exterior environments of a building. It serves as the outer shell to help maintain the indoor environment (together with the mechanical conditioning systems) and facilitate its climate control. Building envelope design is a specialized area of architectural and engineering practice that draws from all areas of building science and indoor climate control."

I've honestly never paid enough attention to the kennels to see any differences from that photo. :p

Pet Kennels are getting the HVAC equipment put in and getting a fresh new coat of paint right before opening.

I don't have a picture of before, but in comparison the only thing different from the outsides, would be the lower walls. It used to be open and you could see the kennels (And dogs). That's the only real difference from the outside that I could see.

I had to board my dog on the 24th so I got a few pictures of the interior. I don't know what's changed, though, because I've never been in there before.
