DMR is proud to announce that the firm has recently secured its third, three-year term contract with the New York City School Construction Authority (NYCSCA) to provide architectural consulting services for Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) across New York City.
Since its first term contract in 2006, DMR has worked on CIP projects of varying scale in technical complexity and cost magnitude for more than 66 projects with a construction value of more than $100 million.
"Part of our goal is to ensure that all CIP project goals meet the clients' mission in achieving safe, attractive and environmentally sound school buildings with a construction process that is performed typically after-hours and on weekends," Fassil Zewdou, project manager, said.
Many renovations not only make the buildings safer and more functional, but also beautify the neighborhoods in which they are in. In cases like PS 81 M (pictured above), also known as Mid-Manhattan Adult Training Center, located in Harlem, DMR's façade upgrades inspired pride in a building that many in the community did not even know was a school prior to DMR's work.
"The changes to the outside of the building have been so dramatic that people who have been coming to the building for years walked right past the school, not recognizing it after scaffolding had been removed," said Ryntha Henderson-Amare, Principal for MMALC. "The new windows flood the building with pleasant light and sunshine."
Other NYCSCA projects either recently completed or currently in the works includes a school's first science lab at PS112 in Manhattan, library upgrades at PS163 in Queens and PS11 in Manhattan and exterior envelope upgrades at PS 40 in Queens, PS 226 in Bronx, and PS 109 in Brooklyn.
