Northern Virginia Community College Adds Higher Ed Center

To help further establish itself as a progressive institution, Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) contracted with Sigal Construction, Warner Mechanical and Kaempf & Harris to build a new Higher Education Center building on campus.

The new three-story building was designed for science, technology and arts education, including general classroom space, common areas and a sound studio. NOVA also planned on applying for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification upon completion of the project.

With a tight deadline to finish the project before classes in the new building started, Kaempf & Harris worked around student schedules, reduced its noise levels to avoid classroom interruptions and met LEED accreditation requirements to deliver the HVAC portion of the build on time and within budget. The new building won LEED Silver accreditation.
