Making Waves Academy

A 58,000sf, fifth-through-eighth-grade charter school in Richmond's Hilltop neighborhood. The existing buildings were tilt-up construction and included total interior demo, seismic improvements on the existing structures and full interior build outs with classrooms with teaching walls, science rooms with epoxy tops and acid waste sinks, music room, art room, multi-purpose room, locker rooms, kitchen, offices, reception areas, and nurse's office. The site construction includes a new new turf field, basketball courts, landscaping, fencing and site concrete that tie the two buildings into a cohesive campus with provisions for future expansion. This project included design build for the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. We provided preconstruction services from the start of schematic design and cooperatively met their needs through completion of construction on time and on budget.

Under construction is a second phase for the charter school: Overaa is adding a 40,000 sf building to campus.
