From all of us at NUVIS, THANK YOU VETERANS! We are so grateful for your service.

NUVIS is proud to be partnering with the City of Lake Forest on renovations to the former Village Pond Park. Construction is almost complete! Improvements to the newly named Veterans Park include a reconstructed pond with floating habitat islands, a native garden with whimsical bird houses, and a memorial plaza featuring monuments which honor all five branches of the military. Custom mosaic-tile folded flags, created by local artist Katherine England, adorn the top of each monument. Grand Opening Ceremonies are scheduled for mid-November. LEARN MORE

Water-efficient Outdoor Laboratory at Bolsa Grande HS


Garden Grove, CA - Bolsa Grande High School is one of three campuses in the Garden Grove Unified School District to install new stormwater management infiltration swales as part of the Drought Response Outreach Program for Schools (DROPS) funded by the State of California. Featuring native and drought-tolerant plant species which attract pollinators, these outdoor laboratories provide educators and students with a wide variety of environmental education opportunities from water recharge and soil samples studies to habitat species and ecosystem development. In addition to the Bolsa Grande project, NUVIS provided conceptual designs, construction documents, and construction observation for similar improvements at Los Amigos High School and Santiago High School.
