We collaborated with Kitchen & Associates and
Andersen-Miller Design to fit-out two floors totaling 49,700 square feet and
renovate specific areas on two other floors at Brooklyn Ascend High School. The building was originally built in 2008 by
a developer for Ascend Public Charter Schools from within the shell of a 1930’s theater and
contains enough space to accommodate a Lower, Middle and High school. Each of
the three schools has a separate entrance on the ground floor. There is also a
large supermarket on the ground floor of the building.
As the construction work for the High school was to principally take place on two
discrete floors, it was possible to completely separate the construction work
from school activities. Thus the work was able to take place throughout the
school year. During times when the school was holding exams the construction
team were required to only undertake activities which made no noise such as
painting and flooring work. This involved careful coordination with the
contractor and the school administrators to ensure that the schedule was met
and there were no delays or disturbances to the commencement of school.
