The New School – University Center

Located at 14th Street and 5th Avenue in the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan, The New School expanded its academic and student “social” spaces with construction of a 16-story educational facility. Development included demolition of the existing building and construction of a 375,000-SF structure with two cellar levels. The building houses seven floors of academic and classroom space, including a large auditorium, and nine floors of efficiency dormitory apartments (totaling 600 beds). Langan’s geotechnical staff evaluated the subsurface conditions, developed recommendations and provided analysis for foundation design and construction. Our environmental engineers supervised a field investigation and prepared a Phase II ESA report, while our site/civil engineers developed the site grading, site water, storm drainage and sanitary sewer design for the project.
