Our team converted a dilapidated office complex into a learning center complete with classrooms, an art center, and gathering spaces. The building was adjacent to the B’nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim Temple. Blue Water oversaw a complete gutting of the interior to the building’s bones, then fully rebuilt the space to create a special place for future generations.

  • Helped bring the visions of many stakeholders into a singular scope
  • Managed the construction within the strict confines of a budget built on donations
  • Consolidated eight utility feeds into one feed each for electrical, gas, and water
  • Constructed a connecting structure between two separate buildings that needed to visually conform to both the learning center and main facility
