Addition to Wood Technology Building

Project Overview:

Producing a building complementary to the surrounding college campus while maintaining a strict budget was the challenge presented to us. Flexibility was key, as they building needed to accommodate a variety of educational and construction technology activities.

The 6,000 SF addition involved investigation, a formal study, a building program providing multiple design options, and a comparative cost analysis to meet the requirements of NYS codes while staying in budget. A pre-engineered metal building, mezzanine, and connector were added to the existing 1970s structure. Lying just south of the existing building, the addition exceeded client expectations and provided new, functional space for students and staff.

Project Fact:

NKB utilized standard building technologies in an unusual way in order to deliver a finished facility within the tight budget for this project.
