Nova Academy

The Nova Academy 42,199 s.f. tenant improvement project is a seismic retrofit and conversion of an existing 4-story office building into a charter high school. The construction scope of work included complete demolition of the existing space, seismic retrofits: installation of 32-metal braces throughout the building and structural steel reinforcement on the 2nd floor patio as well as all interior buildout.

Accelerated Schedule

The Oltmans project management team coordinated closely with Berliner Architects & Nova Academy to ensure project delivery in time for the new school year. To reach the grand opening date, Oltmans began construction activities while design was at 65% completion. Other strategies utilized were early ordering of long lead items such as steel braces, strategic overtime work towards the end of the construction schedule and consistent communication between Berliner Architects, Nova Academy and Oltmans Construction.
