University of Mary Facilities Updates
University of Mary, a four-year private university in Bismarck, North Dakota, required updates to several facilities in order to support their growing Engineering and Student Health Services programs, accommodate enrollment growth and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration.
Bartlett & West led a collaborative approach to incorporate multiple perspectives from stakeholders across campus, providing architectural, plumbing and mechanical services. Altogether, renovations across multiple facilities are expected to total 53,250 square feet and expansions are expected to total 2,500 square feet.
A phased approach kept costs manageable across the board. The projects entail a construction manager-at-risk approach including weekly stakeholder meetings and detailed reviews of Life Safety conditions, ADA best practices and compliance with building codes.
In addition, Bartlett & West made a significant financial contribution to support University of Mary's newly created School of Engineering, has leveraged interns from the university and has provided input for the engineering program's curriculum development.
