PROJECT OVERVIEW

Located in a city neighborhood, the FDNY rescue facility was designed for an elite force of specialized rescue workers to stage and simulate a wide range of emergency conditions. The members of the rescue company train to respond to various emergency scenarios, including fires, building collapses, water rescues, and scuba operations.  

Key Project Attributes

  • The fire-resistant durability of the precast design was crucial in the design of this training facility.

  • Site access was a challenge due to the busy city surroundings. Maintaining a strict delivery schedule enabled a smooth and quick project erection of the project. 

  • The unique use of hollow core and double T’s were used in the flooring of this TPS allowed for a maximum open area while maintaining a sturdy structure.
