Bentonville Emergency Communications Center

Nabholz Construction recently completed the new Bentonville Emergency Communications Center. Located behind the Bentonville Police Department, the facility is quite impressive. The front part of the building houses a two story very large multi-purpose room, workout room, detective area, conference rooms and offices.

The adjoining back part of the building houses the dispatch (Emergency Communications Center). This building is built to withstand an F5 tornado and redundant electrical and mechanical backup systems, all to protect and serve through communications in worst case scenario. The walls are well over a foot thick, I can't imagine the extra extremes Nabholz went through to make this facility what it is. This building has not only office spaces but also, locker room, kitchen/break area but also classroom space that doubles as emergency command room.

For those that may be interested, the scene took planning and forethought to make this room filled with black furnishings to 'pop'.

NWACC Integrated Design Lab

This summer, Nabholz Construction completed the Integrated Design Lab on the campus of Northwest Arkansas Community College. This new facility contains classroom and lab spaces for arts and construction. This facility is impressive in it's design.

The building classrooms have windows on the North and South sides. The shop is on the South side allowing natural light illuminate the majority of the space while the arts are on the North side so the light didn't hinder art work. These two factors are important in both areas and well thought out.

The shop was the most interesting to me since my father taught high school shop/agriculture for 33 years. He would have loved this space, lots of space for any kind of work and the best tools available. I had a long chat with Matt, the shop work instructor, he shared the future plans for the area for many more power tools and opportunities, there are even plans to make it available to the community. As a woodworking enthusiast, I was impressed with his plans, skills and ideas. I will be going back to visit and see the progress he's making.

While we were talking, a lot of memories of my dad and his shop came back. I remember him building furniture and even a military jeep cart for me when I was 5, all in the school shop. I still have the bed frame and dresser he made over 60 years ago.

The New School Additions

The New School had new additions made to their campus in Fayetteville that are very impressive. The three main facilities were the JB Hunt Family Innovation Center, Johnelle Debusk Hunt Academic Building and the Athletic Center. The contractor was Nabholz Construction, with architects Hight Jackson in Rogers and SLAM Collaborative in Connecticut. The campus grounds are larger than you would think, and the new additions fit nicely and greatly compliment the grounds and beautiful landscaping.

The normal view of the above photo of the Johnelle Debusk Hunt Academic Building. It's the little things that greatly distract from the scene that I'm always aware of. In this image, not only has the sky been replaced but also grass, distracting signage, damaged step decals, specific area exposures and also digital water at the pool in foreground.

As with the above image, this one has similar work done, mostly to correct the grass to where it would be natural in a few months.

Rogers Historical Museum

The Rogers Historical Museum has a great new face and one with a incredible back story. The new location was a Ford dealership over 50 years ago, read a little more here. Nabholz Construction completely renovated the building and added on office space.

In the photos you'll notice the original ceiling and brick walls, the amazing part is the front lobby floor is all original from decades ago, I can't imagine the care and precision it took to make sure that and the curved exterior glass windows stayed in tact. So much more was kept in place from the original too. Inside you'll see information about NW Arkansas, Rogers and the history of Rogers as well.

Admiral Movers for Nabholz Construction

Winter is not the best time to create images outdoors, the trees are bare and the grass is beige. This degrades the life out of the image since the landscape has no life to it. However, this does not stop the need of photography, the setting will rarely be 'perfect' for any location session such as this and I welcome all opportunities.

This building, by Nabholz Construction for Admiral Movers, is in Tontitown Arkansas. The interior houses 50,000 soft of client storage, while photographing it, it reminded me of the end of the Indiana Jones movie where they show an interior of a huge government warehouse full of large wooden crates. The East & West exterior walls lean outwards slightly giving it a unique architectural design.

I was given the grand tour of the interior by Bill Locke who really informed me of how much they do, for example, the storing services for companies such has hotels until their construction is done and ready for furniture. It also features amenities for truck drivers while waiting for their trucks to be loaded or unloaded. Other storage areas are available in climate controlled spaces.

Nabholz has entrusted Branch to photograph this structure for an upcoming national construction competition. Nabholz Construction will also be entering the images we created of The New School structures as well.
