NYC Department of Parks and Recreation – Rockaway Operational Headquarters Building
EW Howell Construction Group partnered with architectural design firm H3 on the New York City (NYC) Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Rockaway Operational Headquarters design-build project. The existing 8,600-square-foot building and 1,500-square-foot yard will be demolished, with a temporary swing space being constructed to allow the existing facility to operate throughout construction. In mid-May, we began demolition. This stage of the project, which includes debris removal, has since been completed.
This project requires us to work closely with members of our design-build team, including architects and engineers, as we interface with the client. The design team for this project was issued 75% of the CD set, with IFC set tracking for issuance on July 11. The Public Design Commission approved the preliminary design, which will pull the foundation and new building permits. The final design submission was reviewed in June, with the foundation permit later that month and the new building permit expected in July.
We are constructing a new resilient 42,000-square-foot maintenance and operational facility, including a fueling station and parking yard, for the NYC DEP.
The NYC Department of Parks and Recreation Rockaway Operational Headquarters is LEED Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
