New York – Coreslab Structures (CONN) Inc. was chosen for N.Y. School Project P.S. 81 Standalone Gym Annex in Queens to provide high-performance load-bearing precast concrete insulated wall panels with approximately 7,500sf of architectural finish.
The general contractor on this project is Northeast Restoration Corp.
The exterior face of the precast concrete panels express large projections that the architectural firm MDSzerbaty & Associates desired to add interest and take advantage of customized formwork precast concrete offers. Roughly half of the areas of the panels had thin-brick cast in the offsite production process allowing production of panels ahead of need onsite.
The fast-track project took two months to produce and installation lasted just six days. Coreslab Structures (CONN) Inc. was able to accommodate mechanical and plumbing penetrations during production coordination as well as embed all electrical conduits and boxes to keep a clean back face of precast. The interior of the gymnasium was simplified by the durable finish of the concrete panel.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
