Ledcor has completed the Nursing, Science & Education Building, the Student Activities and Administration Building, and the Central Plant for Nevada State College (NSC) as part of a project to triple the size of the campus. As the Construction Manager at Risk, we worked collaboratively with NSC and project architect PGAL to complete the project under budget and on time for the new school year. This partnership focused on a common goal: to build a campus that gives the student population (nearly 40 percent of which are first-generation college students) the best learning environment possible.
The Nursing, Science & Education building is 66,000 square feet and features 17 state-of-the-art classrooms and science laboratories, two cadaver labs, a 250 seat auditorium, and associated faculty offices and staff spaces. A roof terrace was incorporated to provide the science department access for Astronomy.
The Student Activities & Administration Building is a 61,000 square foot building with a full service café, a bookstore, a campus library, student government, student services, the registrar and financial aid offices, IT services, video production and editing along with all the administrative offices and associated services.
The Central Plant is a 5,000 square foot facility serving both buildings with boilers, chillers, cooling towers, and pumps facilities. The building includes space for future expansion.
The three buildings were successfully completed on time and on budget in July of 2015 and was awarded first place for Excellence in Construction by the Nevada Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors.
