Breslin Builder is getting things in place for the start of the demolition work of the existing office building at the Oquendo Center at the corner of Eastern and Oquendo in Las Vegas, Nevada. The unused and outdated building, Western Veterinarian Center’s original building prior to their current facility was built, will be demolished to make way for a new two-story 30,000 square foot office building. The new office space will allow the current space in the current Oquendo Center to be converted to more convention and teaching space. Demolition is slated by the end of the month with new construction starting in August 2017.
Breslin Builders will be providing construction services for Oquendo Center’s (Western Veterinarian Conference) new expansion to add more convention, lecture, and meeting space to their existing facility. Prior to construction services, we have been working with SH Architecture and the owner providing design-assist pre-construction services.
The first steps in the expansion includes the construction of a new approximately 30,000 square foot office building, which replace their existing unused original office building on the northwest corner of their property (Eastern and Oquendo). Additionally, we will be constructing a new free standing “barn” to replace the existing one being removed as part of the expansion work.
The new expansion work will require changes to some of the original work we previously completed including the demolition of their existing large animal barn, moving their offices to the new building, site changes, and other adjustments.
Demolition work is slated to start by August 1st with overall work anticipated to be completed by April 2019. More updates and renderings will follow as the project progresses.
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.
