Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Fisher Building

Brooklyn Academy of Music BAM Fisher Building

PROJECT DETAILS

Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is a thriving urban arts center that brings international performing arts and film to Brooklyn since 1861. This historic building needed to update and expand its facilities; EW Howell Construction Group was selected to provide Construction Management services for the 6-story structure.

Located at 321 Ashland Place, around the corner from BAM’s Peter Jay Sharp Building, the new 27,000-square-foot facility was designed for LEED Gold certification. The BAM Fisher Building features a 250 to 299-seat theatre rehearsal room, theatre support spaces and amenities, archives facilities, and approximately 3,500 square feet of administrative space. This project is LEED Gold certified with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and has sustainable features including no- or low-volatile organic compound materials, use of day-lighting and sun shades, storm water collection and reuse of energy efficient mechanical and lighting systems, building management systems, and a green roof and a usable terrace.

One of the unique aspects of the Brooklyn Academy is its historical status. During construction, it was important to maintain and restore the existing facade, as well as renovate portions of the interior.

The BAM Fisher Building was recognized by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 Building Brooklyn Awards, being named the Arts and Culture Winner. It also received the 2013 Build New York Award by AGC New York State.
