Academy Charter planned to open a brand new 20+ classroom middle school in September 2014. Nickerson Furniture, a dealer of Columbia Mfg., was involved in designing and supplying all classroom furniture. The building was originally a New York state office building being converted into a school. Being involved with this project from the very beginning made for a smooth transition during the installation process since all parties were aware of what was being supplied and installed in advance. Even with an extremely compacted delivery and installation schedule all equipment was installed on time and ready for school opening.
