Nave Construction Continues

This interior remodel includes a new 6,600-square-foot, two-story “classroom pod” with three offices on the first floor and an adjacent double-height multipurpose presentation space. Enhancements will include a sliding glass curtain wall, new skylight, higher-performing acoustics, lighting, and audio/visual capability.

Originally slated for completion by September 15, construction was delayed due to the Planning and Building Department review processes and an unprecedented building permit backlog in San Francisco. As a result, please expect construction-related activities through the fall 2016 semester.


The width of the Nave will remain narrowed and the former alcove area will remain closed. The construction barrier wall is covered with a special surface so it can be used for critiques. There will be construction-related noise intermittently throughout the fall. Activities producing the loudest noise should be finished on or around September 19.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will continue to communicate updates as construction progresses. Construction is expected to be completed in December and the new spaces will be fully operational in time for the spring 2017 semester. Follow the progress on Instagram #TheNewNave.
