NVIT Trades Building

2015 - Merritt, BC

Meiklejohn Architects worked closely with NVIT and its project managers to design a functional and flexible classroom and trades building on a very limited budget. The building followed a fast-tracked construction and fixed price procurement process that allowed it to complete on time and on budget.

The flexible and open shops areas provide space for the ‘bridging to Trades” program that provides students with pre-foundational training in several high-demand industrial trades. The spaces are constructed with open space and high ceilings to allow accreditation for multiple trades programs.
