HOK SELECTED FOR GREEN SCHOOL PROJECT

NEW YORK CITY — The New York City office of HOK has been chosen by the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) to design a new school in Jamaica, Queens. Public School/Intermediate School 48Q will be a 93,400-square-foot school campus that will house pre-kindergarten through eighth grade students. The school will comprise a five-story, L-shaped “Learning Block” building that will house 32 classrooms and a library, as well as a four-story “Activities Block” building that will house an auditorium, a gymnasium and a cafeteria. The $52.5 million project will be one of the first schools in the city designed to meet the New York City Green Schools Rating System, a sustainable building guideline system created by the CSA. Completion of the project is scheduled for September 2011. The new school will be replacing an existing 1930s-era school, which will be preserved and converted into offices for the New York City Department of Education.
