IS 201 Brooklyn

Nelligan White designed and oversaw the construction of an extensive renovation that addressed the entire enclosure of this historic Brooklyn elementary school.

IS 201 Brooklyn is a junior high school (grades 6 – 8) for 1532 students and 175 staff. It was designed by William H. Gompert in 1924 along 12th Avenue (between 80th and 81st Streets) in the Dyker Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn.

This building shell renovation includes the removal of all face brick masonry and replacement over a narrow cavity drainage plane, as well as a ten-foot perimeter excavation to provide waterproofing at the perimeter of the foundation of the building. The existing windows have been reinstalled with new blocking and flashing, and the roof and parapets have been replaced. the site civil work also includes new drainage and dry wells. Our design ensures that the building’s structural steel frame will be protected against corrosion, and the water and air barrier is effectively integrated with the new flashing at masonry openings.

Substantial completion was reached in February, 2018.
