BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
The project involved the design of a new 90,000 SF, 700 student elementary school which serves Pre-K through 5th grade in Brooklyn, NY. It was the first New York City public school to contain a fully wireless computer network.
The facility is comprised of two volumes linked together by an open, light-filled atrium. A large curvilinear wing contains the lobby, gymnasium, library, auditorium and cafeteria. A long rectangular wing houses the classrooms.
MEP system design included a dual fire boiler plant, chiller plant, central air conditioning units, variable volume air system, perimeter baseboard heating, electric service system, fire alarm system, diesel-driven emergency generator, lighting systems and lighting control, master clock system, and other low voltage system.
