Sheila Y. Oliver Academy Elementary School

The New Jersey School District Authority selected STV to provide construction management services for the Sheila Y. Oliver Academy School in East Orange, NJ. The three-story facility, formerly known as George Washington Carver Elementary, comprises 77,000 square feet and includes a multipurpose room/gymnasium, cafeteria and classroom spaces. The completed school can hold 490 students ranging from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade. 

Located near two heavily trafficked roads in the heart of a vibrant neighborhood, the project was built on a parcel with tight site constraints and limited staging area. The construction team needed to coordinate extensively with the local authorities and Essex county.
