This 25-story mixed-use tower overlooks the Cumberland River and another Kovach project, the Ascend Amphitheater. Providing over 360,000 SF of Class A office space, 25,000 SF of ground-level retail and office space, and an 1100 space parking garage, 222 2nd Ave. is the newest addition to Nashville’s growing skyline.
This 10-story building is the newest member of the University of Arizona’s Biomedical Campus, located in downtown Phoenix. Kovach collaborated with CO Architects in the design of the award-winning custom copper system, which resembles rock and sediment formations found in canyons. The striking copper panels were fabricated at Kovach’s headquarters in Chandler, AZ.
151 1st Avenue South is a singular 40-story tall high-rise tower with 142 luxury riverfront condominiums paired with a 232 room five-star luxury hotel in the center podium. The project will provide parking to 374 cars and maintain around 8,000 SF of retail which will serve to activate First Avenue across from West Riverfront Park.
This 200,000 square-foot facility primarily houses the Mechanical Engineering Department, and will contain research and teaching labs, faculty offices, student workspaces and a 300-seat auditorium. It also includes a retail food grab-and-go facility, a third-floor student lounge with a balcony and a landscaped courtyard with seating to provide additional study and collaboration space.
Two mid-rise buildings featuring 149 hotel rooms, 40 condominiums and approximately 25,000 square feet of street-fronting retail and restaurant space. A seven-level subterranean garage would span across the property, offering parking for up to 400 vehicles. The terrace levels will be used to create a series of pool decks and private rooftop gardens.
An unprecedented upscale experience that blends sports and entertainment with first-class hospitality and superior amenities. Designed by internationally-acclaimed HKS Architects, the 14-story tall contemporary glass tower will feature 302 luxury guestrooms, including 26 suites, with floor to ceiling glass windows that show off incredible, expansive views of the entertainment district from each room.
The home of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, Golden 1 Center is carbon and grid neutral, as well as LEED Gold-certified. Only the pioneering capabilities of Kovach’s design team could accommodate what architectural firm, AECOM created: a metal panel facade featuring custom embossed metal panels. The result is a stunning and one-of-a-kind building facade.
This project features Kovach’s Unitized Stone System: Sourcing stone from nearby Chino Valley, sandstone slabs were integrated into our metal and glass panel systems to create a system that is easier and more efficient to manufacture and install. Unitizing the stone system significantly reduced installation time, labor costs, and jobsite congestion, while increasing overall job safety.
The Health Sciences Innovation Building (HSIB) will provide space for integrated, inter-professional medical and healthcare education, training and research. In addition to flexible large-, medium- and small-group/team learning areas, it will include a clinical skills and simulation center for a broad range of use and applications.
Tooker House, ASU’s newest student housing facility, is the latest addition to the growing list of facilities at Arizona State University that feature stunning architecture. Kovach was thrilled to participate with the design team at Solomon, Cordwell, Buenz to bring their design intent to life. The use of various perforated metals, natural sand stone, insulated metal panels, and insulated low-e glass ensure that this project will perform optimally in the Valley of the Sun.
Every journey begins somewhere. Kovach Building Enclosures is no different. With a single vision, and a heart to see it come true, Stephen Kovach III founded Kovach Properties, Inc. to fulfill his mission--making buildings better. Determined, he began selling roofing and siding materials to local contractors in Scottsdale, AZ in 1969.
By 1977, business was steadily growing, and it’s no surprise more help was needed. Stephen III’s son, Stephen IV, joined the family business with the same passion and vigor as his father. The pair installed siding and roofing, and began fabricating panels by hand.
Less than 20 years later, the Kovachs had made a name for themselves in the industry as expert roofing contractors, working throughout the southwest. In the 1990s, Kovach Metal Roof & Wall Professionals was recognized as one of the largest roofing contractors in the US.
Kovach's rapid growth forced the company to expand its office space to meet the demands of its ever growing business. In 1992 the team moved from their former location in Scottsdale, AZ to Mesa, AZ to accommodate the growth of their team. As their team grew, their vision grew too.
After firmly establishing themselves in the 1990s as the market leader in single skin metal systems, Kovach continued to evolve in the 2000s and began fabricating and installing composite, stone, and other high end skin systems. This led to the creation of their own private label brand of ACM - Kovabond. Kovach's continued growth was largely due to their ability to master new scopes of work.
New success with wall systems brought on continuous growth, and that growth required more space. Kovach moved from Mesa to their current headquarters in Chandler, AZ in 2005. The expansion of the company meant new opportunities for them to present themselves as a powerhouse among specialty subcontractors.
Determined to take the industry by storm, Kovach Metal Roof & Wall Professionals was intentional about positioning themselves as an industry leader. They rebranded as Kovach Building Enclosures--a name that encompassed their multifaceted brand. 2011 brought on the acquisition of a glazing contractor, and Kovach Building Enclosures took on bigger, better, bolder projects like the serpentine curtain wall at Intel in Chandler, AZ and ASU’s Sundevil Fitness in downtown Phoenix, AZ.
Continuous growth and determination to excel in their craft expanded Kovach’s reach. 2013 marked the completion of one of Kovach’s landmark projects–Music City Center–located in Nashville, TN. This project showcased their expertise in metal cladding and laid the foundation for a regional office in Nashville. Since 2013, Kovach has continued to contribute to the rapidly changing skyline of Music City USA.
By 2017, Kovach had established itself as a national leader known for its innovations throughout the country, spanning from coast to coast. Their great success led to the establishment of regional offices outside of Arizona, as well as the expansion of Kovach’s Chandler headquarters. Kovach’s beloved headquarters expanded to keep up with the demand.
Kovach celebrates its 50th year of continuous business as a champion in the design, fabrication and installation of complex façades. A single vision, hardwork, and perseverance turned the once family run business into the industry leader we see today.
