NDSCS is North Dakota’s premier trade technical college. The campus was plagued by water and sewer issues due to aged infrastructure. The North Dakota State Legislature appropriated $13.3 million to address the infrastructure issues at NDSCS. The college used the funds to replace the utility infrastructure and address pedestrian, ADA, parking, and traffic movement improvements.
Bolton & Menk provided program management, engineering and landscape architecture design, and construction observation for the project. A campus-wide GIS system was implemented for efficient collection and use of as-built and utility information that reduces facility labor costs and increases accuracy of information for asset management. Additionally, a robust public and campus information campaign was implemented, which included a project-specific website, social media and text alerts, and public/campus meetings. Because of innovative planning and engineering, the campus underwent its most important, intrusive, and disruptive project – all while maintaining full operational capacity, classes, and additional events. The campus now has state-of-the-art utilities, enhanced pedestrian transportation, and campus beautification through landscape architecture.
