The following is some of the work "on-the-boards" at DF Gibson Architects.
SOUTH BRONX JOB CORPS CENTER
DF Gibson was retained by the US Department of Labor and PB Dewberry to provide A/E services for the renovation of the South Bronx Job Corps Center at 1771 Andrews Avenue.
The Job Corps Center is an historically significant building. It was designed by Charles Brigham in the Jacobeathan Revival style complete with towers, turrets and dormers with Flemish gables and constructed in 1905 as the Messiah Home for Children. After being used as a hospice during World War I and as a Salvation Army training center from 1920 until 1975, the US Department of Labor acquired it in 1978 and renovated it for the Job Corps program.
This renovation is the first major comprehensive modernization of the building since 1978. The scope of work includes replacement of roof, windows and doors, repair and cleaning of masonry, replacement of HVAC equipment and interior renovations to the bathrooms and selected walls and ceilings.
NYS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORATION MAINTENANCE FACILITIES
DF Gibson Architects was retained by The New York State Office of General Services for the roof replacement on three of their facilities on Long Island - Babylon (three buildings), Commack and Patchogue. The work included evaluating the existing building and then proposing several alternatives to determine the solution that provided the best combination of cost, durability and aesthetics.
