Project Description

This project at I.S. 127 in the Bronx, New York, involved an accessibility renovation. The school was not handicapped accessible and upgrades were needed in order to accommodate its use as a public polling place during elections.

The scope of this work included a new handicapped accessible ramp at the entrance, and replacement of doors and floors in order to comply with ADA standards.

At the start of the project, a detailed Scope Report on the existing conditions of the building and an analysis of the current issues and the proposed solution is created. The report includes such data as current building estimates, violations and supporting photos.

The Scope Report is used as the basis for the development of the Construction Documents. The estimate is fully developed and a Specification book is developed in conjunction with the construction documents.
