Campus Infrastructure Replacement, North Dakota State College of Science
"Bolton & Menk, Inc. worked as a true partner to the Campus throughout the design and construction of this project. They took an active listening approach to our needs, wants and concerns throughout the project. With their assistance in planning and coordination with the Campus and the contractors, we did not have to cancel a single event on Campus during the project." John Richman Ph.D. , President

Campus Infrastructure Replacement

North Dakota State College of Science

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.
