Newburg-Beacon Maintenance Building Envelop System – Design

The project is to support the New York State Bridge Authority (NYSBA) with design services for building renovations for the 1963 maintenance building at the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge.

The existing building is a two-story steel and concrete structure with a flat roof that will go through several major renovations to improve its performance, durability, and appearance. The project includes three phases – a preliminary study, a final design, and design support during the construction. A visual assessment was conducted to report on the existing conditions and materials of the building. The scope of work includes all new windows and doors while maintaining the original sizes, and minimizing any impact to the interior finish work. A new exterior wall cladding and a sloped standing seam metal roof will also be part of the renovation. Additional structural elements will be provided to support the new sloped roof, plumbing vents and roof fans will need to be extended, removed and/or relocated above the new roof as necessary. An existing heating and cooling rooftop unit (RTU) will be considered to remain or be replaced by a newer unit that will be housed inside the new sloped roof. The new design will use low-maintenance materials that are also more energy-efficient meeting or exceeding the 2020 Energy Conservation Construction Code of the State of New York.
