National Hispanic Cultural Center

The National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) is devoted to the preservation, promotion, and advancement of Hispanic culture, arts and humanities.

Its 20-acre campus was constructed in phases starting in 2000.  Due to the phased construction of the various buildings, the facility never had a landscaped entrance worthy of its importance in the community.

The landscape project was meant to be completed for their annual fundraiser event in 2017. But, the original design plan was way over budget. So, the NHCC had two options -- forego the project entirely -- or bring on FacilityBUILD. We were happy to step in to bring this project to a reality with value engineering

Due to the aggressive project timeline, the project was Value-Engineered and Fast-Tracked.  FacilityBUILD took charge and established weekly design and construction meetings to make sure the design development targeted the limited budget of the project.

Through the collaborative effort that included the Owner, Architect and Contractors, the project was Value-Engineered every step of the way. Completed on schedule and on-budget, the final result was an elegant landscaped entrance where a dirt lot previously stood.

And the big event was enjoyed by all and most importantly met their fund-raising goals. Thanks to the NHCC director and deputy director, Site Southwest, and the FacilityBUILD construction team, the project was a complete success.
