Navaera Sciences commences construction on adaptive reuse project in Arizona


US-based Navaera Sciences has commenced construction on its adaptive reuse project for the former Bratzel Building in Scottsdale, Arizona.

This project will revitalise the 8,427ft2 building that was originally designed in 1966 by Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice Ray Parrish.

Navaera has appointed Bayley Construction as general contractor for the project.

The project will see the former industrial building being transformed into a modern, energy efficient office that will provide suitable environment for carrying out research and development.

Navaera Sciences managing principal Matthew Adler said,: "Navaera believes strongly in adaptive reuse projects that enable our organization to keep stories and memories of our communities alive, while also reducing unnecessary waste in constructing our office environments. We are excited to be moving into the downtown Scottsdale area, with its array of amenities, and central location."

Bayley superintendent for this project Jeremy Vermilyer said: "I'm excited to bring new life to the former Bratzel Building here in Scottsdale, where one of our offices is also located. It's always a fun challenge renovating a building from the mid-'60s. With hard work and a great team like ours, nothing is impossible."

Following completion of the project, Navaera will occupy the second floor of the renovated facility.

Two suites at ground floor will be made available for tenants. They will range in size from 1,000 to 4,100ft2.

Construction of the project is expected to be completed in May.
