The Capital Projects area of NOVA Facilities is responsible for implementing all capital construction projects. The Capital Projects team helps to coordinate the six campus Master Plans, and NOVA’s Six-Year Capital Outlay Plan within the Virginia Community College System (VCCS). The team implements capital building projects from the initial state funding approval, through the programming, design, construction and final move-in/occupancy of each capital project. The Capital Projects team also works with NOVA and VCCS staff, outside state agencies (ex. DEB, AARB, VCE), architects and engineering design consultants and construction contractors, to maintain the scope, schedule and budget of capital projects.
Capital Facilities Updates for Fiscal Year 2021
The full-renovation of the CF Building is currently in the planning phase. The updated layout will provide a place to socialize, eat, host events, attend meetings, and engage in campus life. The improved cafeteria will have a modern look with expanded seating that is connected to outdoor space.
The full-renovation of the Reynolds Building scheduled to be completed at the end of 2021, with full occupancy slated for early 2022. When complete, the 78,880 SF, three-story building will feature classrooms, a one stop shop for student services, administrative offices and bookstore.
The renovation of 10,530 SF of currently vacant space in Trailside 1 will include 8 Math Classrooms, 6 Offices and a Math Tutoring Center. Full occupancy is scheduled for Summer 2021.
The full renovation of the Howsmon and Colgan buildings will provide a new main entrance which will reconfigure spaces to provide a single point-of-contact for student services. The addition of new science labs and expanded classroom sizes with an expanded student activities center and cafeteria will create a hub for students. Working drawing phase for full-renovation is scheduled to begin in early 2021 with construction scheduled for Summer 2022.
