New York Office Wins NYC School Construction Authority Contract
The New York City School Construction Authority (NYC SCA) has awarded WDP’s New York Office the Contract for Design and Construction Services in Connection with Building Envelope Commissioning (BECx) Services. WDP will support the NYC SCA in their effort to utilize innovative green building practices, features, and technologies for new building projects and existing building renovation projects. As part of the BECx process, WDP will provide documented assurance that newly constructed facilities or improvement projects at the facilities involving building envelope components, assemblies and systems fulfill the design and performance requirements of the 2019 NYC Green Schools Guide as well as conformance to the latest edition of the NYC Energy Conservation Code.
WDP is very excited to continue working with the NYC SCA. Over the last five years, we have earned two term contracts for NDT services, during which WDP has investigated structural and/or envelope conditions, diagnosed problems, and provided reports with repair recommendations for the City’s schools. In addition, WDP assisted with developing their building enclosure commissioning program - developing recommended specifications and details to implement an enclosure commissioning program to improve the built quality of the water, air, thermal, and vapor management of the exterior walls of new schools, in addition to meeting the requirements of New York City energy code, LEED Enhanced Commissioning credits, and NYC local laws.
