project at a glance

The addition to P.S./I.S. 42 increased student capacity to alleviate overcrowding at this public school. 

The six-story, 53,000 square foot building was programmed to add 410 seats, eight classrooms, a music suite, art and science labs, and student support and service areas with administrative space. 

The new facility includes a street level entrance, a mezzanine level to connect the new addition to the existing facility, and four instructional floors to match the floors of the original school. The building is fully air-conditioned and complies with Local Law 86 and the NYC Green Schools Guide and Rating System.

There were renovations to the existing school building, which included an administrative suite, a pre-kindergarten/kindergarten suite, a parent community room, an additional classroom and the relocation and consolidation of communications and life safety systems.
