New York School Construction Authority (NYSCA) has committed to providing safe and secure organized recess program for their students and faculty.
At many of the existing school sites within the five boroughs of New York City, stand-alone gymnasiums will be constructed within existing outdoor playground areas. When researching what building materials incorporating the look of traditional masonry to complement its surroundings as well as speed of construction on tight project sites, precast concrete provided the best option for these long-lasting durable buildings.
Coreslab Structures (Conn) Inc. has long established itself in providing Architectural High-Performance Cladding and Total Precast Concrete Solutions to the building industry for over 20 years and was pleased to assist in the design and construction of many of these projects.
Pictured here are a few of the most recent self-standing gymnasiums being built in the New York City boroughs currently in the final phases of completion.
