Bognet teamed with Avison Young, FORM Architects, and Sentinel Real Estate Group to transform National Electrical Contractors Association’s (NECA) space from a second-generation shell to an award-winning headquarters fit out to showcase each and every trade represented by NECA. During preconstruction, Bognet assisted repeat customer, NECA, with value engineering opportunities to ensure the project could maintain showroom-quality aesthetics on a budget.
Throughout the construction process, Bognet provided mock-ups of glass film, polished concrete floors, metal wall panels, feature wire wall, reception feature wall with electrical tools. The Bognet team also design-built base plates for the owner-provided telephone pole lights that stretch over the pantry seating and managed a time lapse camera on-site to track construction progress for the out-of-town client.
Beyond its incredible showroom-quality light fixtures, NECA also contains a multitude of one-of-a-kind features that serve as conversation pieces and odes to the electrical industry. Some of these nods include a wire wall and a yellow ceiling feature that represents electrical data busways.
The National Electrical Contractors Association is a trade association in the United States that represents the electrical contracting industry. NECA supports the businesses that bring power, light, and communication technology to buildings and communities.
