Construction is ongoing at Bronx Community College ’s new 98,000-sq-ft North Instructional Building and Library, where a recent supply of building products and submittal services has been provided to help meet the project’s scheduled completion date.
The North Instructional Building was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects of New York to match the original classical-revival style campus that was the former location of New York University before it moved to Manhattan and the campus became Bronx Community College.
The new building is also designed to achieve LEED Silver status from the U.S. Green Building Council through the use of all recycled materials purchased from local vendors and will contain classrooms and a cafe on the first floor and a two-story library with a vaulted ceiling.
Recently, Park Avenue Building and Roofing Supplies, a family-owned business that is based in Brooklyn, supplied the project team—which includes construction manager TDX Construction and general contractor National Environment of Long Island City, N.Y.—with metal framing, below-grade waterproofing, interior panels and metal decking .
Construction on the $102-million project started in June 2009 and is scheduled for completion by January 2012.
