PS 176Q

Elementary School, New York City, NY

The PS176Q project is a 44,000 square foot addition to an existing primary school in the Cambria Heights section of Queens, New York.  The new addition consists of a new cafeteria and classroom space and will allow for the school to accommodate approximately 370 more students when it opens in 2016.  The new addition must conform to the requirements of the School Construction Authority Green Schools Guide.  The SCA Green Schools Guide has been developed to comply with the requirements of Local Law 86 which required LEED Silver certification or the equivalent for publicly funded projects in New York City.  In Posse is currently providing consulting services to the project team on the application of the Green Schools Guide to the project.  In addition, we are sustainability and daylight consultants for this project and are helping the project team optimize the daylight harvesting potential for the new addition while limiting its environmental footprint.
