NYC Department of Design and Construction
New York City Green Building Commission Grand Prize
In conjunction with the NYC Percent for Art Program, F&S built a 250-foot-long wall that links the site to its previous history. F&S carefully demolished the existing facility and salvaged several truck loads of materials. This material was then delivered to artist, Samm Kunce, who used the bricks, concrete fragments and stones salvaged from the old building on site to create prefabricated wall panels that once constructed together, illustrates the dynamic effects of icebergs as they ground mountains to pebbles during the last ice age when Long Island was formed. Along with the construction of the entire facility, F&S installed the footings, metal trims and panels to construct the wall. We also integrated the crushed debris into the paving inside the facility.
