PROJECT OVERVIEW

“Courtyard”

(Bobby Gentry | Songwriter:  Bobby Gentry)

 

100 Claremont Ave

SURROUNDED BY HISTORY

The 100 Claremont Avenue building is within the court yard of the historic Union Theological Seminary, which is the oldest independent seminary in the United States. Construction includes a new 42-story high rise building and the renovation of the existing refectory. The proximity of the new building to the 100+ year old historic structures brought about immense challenges for the design and construction of the new building.

100 Claremont Ave

GEODesign provided geotechnical engineering, support of excavation design, construction administration, and special inspection services. This included test borings and test pits, geophysical bedrock fracture orientation testing, foundation design recommendations, obtaining NYC Transit permission, and preparing an historic structure monitoring plan that was acceptable to the Landmarks Commission.
