The project involved renovating a 122-year-old building to provide 17 medical exam rooms and a community multi-purpose center.
The building was reduced to its core. Structural supports were modified to reflect the new layout and stair openings. Work included all new MEP systems with 3 Roof Top Units providing gas heating and cooling. The existing wood roof was restructured to accept the new units. Exterior brick and brownstone were cleaned, repointed, and repaired. Extensive repairs were also made to the wood trim and entry. Although not a historic renovation, many landmark elements were preserved, and new work was performed to align with existing features. All new interior stairs, partitions, doors, medical casework, and finishes were installed. Construction also included an addition to house an elevator.
Challenges: Remediation work on the existing structure, where numerous unforeseen support columns had been added over the years, conflicted with the new layout. Low deck height made coordination of the ductwork, fire suppression, plumbing, and electrical systems extremely critical.
