Nave Construction Update

posted Oct 4, 2016, 11:40 AM by   [ updated Oct 4, 2016, 11:47 AM ]

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

There will be construction-related noise intermittently throughout the fall. Activities producing the loudest noise--such as drywall installation--will be finished by the end of October. 

Occupational safety and health:
  • CCA and our contractor take this issue very seriously not only for our community but also to protect the workers on the construction site. We have an excellent site superintendent who schedules frequent health and safety checks. The contractor has strict site safety requirements and must also adhere to OSHA standards. 
  • The site meets all requirements for dust control, exhaust, and ventilation and all materials are managed in accordance with city, state, and federal regulations.
  • There will inevitably be some dust and odor from construction activities but we do not expect any hazards

Due to the noise, we have moved some classes to other locations. If there are any other concerns, instructors are advised to contact their program managers. 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.

This interior remodel of the Nave will include 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. We can't wait for it to be done.
