Rocketship United Academy

Nashville, Tennessee

This is the second charter elementary school that Rocketship and Turner Impact Capital have brought to Nashville. Rocketship II consists of a 37,068 square foot facility that repurposed an existing office building and campus. This project called for 3,700 square feet of second floor slab and steel framing to be removed in order to create a new full-height gym space within the existing two-story building. The construction timeline for the project was just six months from receipt of the building permit to the grand opening.  Due to the extensive effort of taking away the building’s existing steel framing and reframing it from the inside, this project was split into multiple phases. This required excellent coordination from the project team. The Rocketship II project was delivered on time and under budget, and resulted in a wonderful facility for the charter school.
