Miller-Valentine Group will be renovating NuVasive’s new facility, in preparation for the medical manufacturer coming to West Carrollton.
NuVasive accepted the real estate group’s bid to renovate the property last Thursday and Miller-Valentine is currently seeking demolition permits to immediately start the project. “We think it will be a good, long-term relationship,” said Denny Whitehead, Miller-Valentine Group vice president of commercial construction.
The renovation project is expected to cost around $5 million — part of San Diego-based NuVasive’s (NASDAQ: NUVA) plans to invest a total $45 million in renovations, additional work and new equipment at the former Motoman site.
The company plans to move about 100 workers from Fairborn to the new facility and add 200 more in the next few years. Whitehead said they first plan to start work on renovating office space for NuVasive to interview employees in.
Work also includes 66,000 square feet of existing space demolition, 25,000 square feet of new office space, 26,000 square feet of amenities and common space like a fitness center and training center, 88,000 square feet of renovated manufacturing space, modifications and improvements to existing HVAC and electrical systems, a new exterior entrance and an outdoor social area and barbecue deck.
The Dayton Business Journal first reported in December that NuVasive would be coming to West Carrollton, creating one of the largest machining operations in southwest Ohio.
