High School for Construction Trades, Engineering, and Architecture
The High School for Construction Trades, Engineering, and Architecture prepares students for college, technical school, and/or apprenticeships in the fields of the building trades, engineering and architecture. STV was contracted by the New York City School Construction Authority to perform architectural and engineering design for the 150,000-square-foot facility. After developing three alternative schematic designs, the firm developed the preferred concept through final design and construction documents.
The building was designed to make a strong architectural statement emphasizing architectural and urban design. The building materials, construction details and mechanical and electrical systems serve as illustrative teaching materials, fitted with the purpose of the school.
