Hosting one of the longest running reconstruction project award programs, Building Design + Construction Magazine has selected The Residences at PS 186 / The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem as a Platinum winner of the 2017 Reconstruction Award. The winning projects – two platinum and four gold awards – were selected for demonstrating the best reconstructed, renovated, or remodeled projects from across the country. The jury focused on how design teams overcame challenges and the way designs transformed the building and neighborhood.
One juror marveled at how the “adaptive reuse of PS 186 in West Harlem shows what can be done when imagination and determination come together.” We are proud to have contributed to such an important landmark building. After many years, “the project was applauded by the Reconstruction Awards jury as a shining example of what can be done to bestow new life on the thousands of vacant public schools that face ruin in America’s older cities.”
Winners were profiled in the November 2017 issue of the Building Design + Construction Magazine.
