The proposed Project consists of an addition and alterations to four existing Army Reserve Center buildings at Ft. Wadsworth on Staten Island. The architectural component of the project includes the renovation and alterations of existing facilities in a campus setting on Staten Island, New York.
The majority of the project will consist of interior renovations with the exception of the existing roofing systems. As part of the renovation, the existing roofing systems on all four buildings will be removed and will receive a new low slope EPDM roofing system.
Primary facilities include an ARC training building alteration (36,500 sf), ARC training building addition (3,000 sf), Maintenance Building Alteration (6,000 sf), unheated storage alteration (3,000 sf), and organizational parking (5,940 sf).
Renovation will consist of interior wall construction and demolition, renovation of existing mechanical, heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, electrical and plumbing systems, finishes and new roofing. The new addition will be of permanent construction with heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, plumbing, mechanical systems, security systems, and electrical systems.
Supporting facilities include land clearing, paving, fencing, and general site improvements. Physical security measures will be incorporated into design including entry control points, maximum standoff distance from roads, parking areas, and vehicle unloading areas. Berms, heavy landscaping and bollards will be used to prevent access when standoff distances cannot be maintained.
