New York Police Academy
Project Overview :
The $656 million multi-year project will consolidate all NYPD training operations to one 35-acre campus in the College Point section of Queens. Three buildings are being erected in Phase 1: a seven-story academic facility, a two-story physical training building and a central utility structure.
Phase 1 will also include parking for up to 900 cars. The second phase, which will incorporate NYPD facilities now located across the city, will feature indoor shooting ranges, a tactical village, a police museum, additional parking for 300 cars and a housing area for visiting officers from out of the area. Because of the area’s high water table, at least 6,000 piles had to be driven.
Concrete and foundation work followed and continued as well as the installation of utilities and steel erection. As part of Turner/Matrix team, Garden State provided horizontal and vertical control, and with a full time crew, became responsible for the steel layout once the foundation was completed.
