New school construction is most often focused on one thing: the opening bell of the first day of school. Local school boards simply can’t postpone the first day of school because construction is behind schedule. That’s why, when it comes to the complex electrical work, firms like W.G. Mills, Inc. and Willis Smith turn to NCN Electric.
Riverview Highschool is the largest contract awarded to date for a high school in the state of Florida, $135,000,000. The 421,659 sq ft high school accommodates 2600 students. This was a very challenging project that led the path to many more successful educational renovations. The project had complex electrical systems, multiple phases, numerous changes by the owner and a tight schedule. NCN Electric provided the proper experienced manpower to handle a project of this magnitude, kept up with the changes seamlessly, all delivered on time and on budget.
