Public School 62R

Project Details

Location: Staten Island, New York

Scope of work: PS 62 is a new two story 65,500 square feet “Net Zero” school.  It is the first school in the five boroughs designed to produce as much energy as it consumes:

  • The high-tech school generates solar energy through some 2,000 photovoltaic panels placed on the roof and wrapped around the building.
  • More than 80 underground geo-exchange pumps send water, to be warmed in winter and cooled in summer by the Earth’s internal energy, that supply the school’s heating and air-conditioning systems.
  • A wind turbine also generates energy.

Scope of services: Retained as Building Code, Zoning Consultant and Expediters. Filed plans and applications with city agencies having jurisdiction, obtained approvals, permits and a final certificate of occupancy.
