Vocational Center Improvements

Vocational Center for the Indian AssociationThis project illustrates BCE’s ability to successfully work with the tribal governments, adopting the professional support to their unique requirements and processes. The objective of this project was to convert a portion of an existing office building into a vocational school for youth, as well as provide space for creation and exhibiting of the traditional native arts and crafts (a museum). Also included in this project was dormitory/ temporary housing for students.

BCE professional team visited and carefully inspected the project site, all existing systems, and prepared a design study report outlining architectural layout of the proposed spaces, code study (to ensure compliance with ADA and building code requirements), recommended mechanical and electrical upgrades, civil site improvements, and developed a construction costs estimate. The work included interior modifications, reconfiguration of the existing space, building modernization, energy upgrades that included conversion of the building heating (from oil), and other work.

BCE accommodated the client’s request to accelerate the project schedule to enable them to submit the design documents with the grant application required for project funding. The project was completed 2 months prior to the originally scheduled completion date.

Overall this project is a good example of BCE’s ability to accommodate accelerated schedules, provide additional services as requested, work with local and tribal governments, and conduct work at a remote location.
