NYC DOT Facilities Maintenance at Sunrise Yard

Client Agencies: New York City Department of Transportation; NYC Department of Design & Construction.

The NYC DOT Facilities Maintenance at Sunrise Yard is a high performance home base for the carpenters, electricians, and plumbers who maintain and support NYC DOT’s portfolio of buildings. The 27,000 square foot building with a construction cost of $19,900,000, isNYC DOT Facilities Maintenance at Sunrise Yard  located in a residential area of Queens, and provides a model for NYC Department of Design + Construction’s efforts to demonstrate that sustainable facilities are achievable using low-tech strategies–ones accessible to the general public.

A broad participation in the programming and design process led to integrated solutions that provide a highly efficient building and a comfortable working environment for the client. An efficient and comfortable new building was the primary goal, replacing the group’s jumble of outmoded spaces. The Team’s analysis of the program led to a three-zone building organization that met both functional and environmental objectives: 1) Offices and personnel support; 2)Workshops; and 3) Stock room. Requirements for systems, daylight and finishes were separately defined, and this became the core of the design and green strategies. The building’s energy efficiency is 85% above a baseline standard.
