Opportunity Village Chooses DC Building Group for $5M Expansion/Renovation

Nonprofit Opportunity Village chose a local contractor to work on the expansion of its campus at 6050 S. Buffalo Drive. The nonprofit awarded DC Building Group a $5 million contract to expand and renovate a building on its Ralph and Betty Engelstad Campus.

DC Building Group will construct a two-story, 38,000-square-foot expansion of the campus’ 55,000-square-foot Thomas & Mack Employment Resource Center. It will also renovate 10,000 square feet of space inside the building.

Opportunity Village provides intellectually disabled Las Vegans with community employment, vocational training, day services, advocacy, arts and social recreation. With more than 3,000 clients a year, the charity is Nevada’s largest private, not-for-profit community rehabilitation program.

Bryce Clutts, president of DC Building Group, said the project fits with the 14-year-old contractor’s efforts to make nonprofit groups part of its core business.

General contractor Martin-Harris and design firm JMA Architecture Studios are also working on the project.
