Oquendo Center Remodel Started

Breslin Builders is providing the first part of an extensive remodel at the Oquendo Center (also known as the Western Veterinarian Conference Center).  This remodel updates and expands the veterinarian teaching and clinic areas within the existing facilities, expanding needed kennel space, vet teaching areas, and other support facilities.

As with many remodels, the facility remains operational during our construction efforts and we are working in concert with the facility to ensure compatibility with their operations.

This makes the second project we have completed in 2016 for OC and WVC (the first was an addition of a full size autoclave machine) since we originally built the facility almost a decade ago.

Some progress photos of our construction efforts are below:

Breslin Builders is providing continued design and construction services for the WVC Oquendo Center facility, located on Eastern and Oquendo in Las Vegas, Nevada, by providing the needed building modifications and additions for a new full size walk through autoclave installation.  The autoclave will allow for faster and more efficient cleaning on the various equipment, tools, and other items used during their veterinarian and medical education classed provided at the world class facility.  Breslin Builders assisted with the initial design and provided construction services for the facility.

Working with Getinge for the autoclave machine, Breslin Builders provided the needed documentation for permits from Clark County Building Department.  A new recessed pit, additional mechanical, plumbing, and electrical services to the machine, as well as a new prep sink and cleaning area are being provided within the existing facility.  Working closely with the facility managers, we are able to provide the services needed while the facility stays operational, which generally includes a new continuing education seminar each week.
