PS 21 School Construction Authority Williamsbridge Bronx Work on the Philip H. Sheridan School in the Bronx was part of a term-contract for the NYC School Construction Authority. This project involved all phases of design and construction for exterior envelope, including full roof replacement, parapet rebuilding, ornamental stonework replacement, and rebuilding of areaways’ rubble stone walls with new railings.
This was one of six schools assigned to our firm under a 5-year term contract with the School Construction Authority. Our office completed all phases of design and construction-related services on these projects; the budgets for each school ranged from $1.2 to $6.2 million dollars for construction costs. Our responsibilities began with detailed surveys and scope reports to establish the budget and scope of each project. We then took each project through to construction documents, bidding, construction administration and close-out. Our exterior envelope work addressed brick and stone masonry repointing and replacement, parapet and bulkhead rebuilding, and roofing replacement. We also renewed outdoor sports and play areas.
Interior renovation work included general redesign/reconfiguration of interior spaces as well as structural repairs, plaster/paint refinishing of walls, upgrading restrooms to ADA compliance, creating early childhood restrooms, replacing auditorium ceiling and lighting, rebuilding a stage, retrofitting of existing systems, piping and drainage replacement, and grout injection waterproofing to eliminate flooding.
