Friends Seminary, the oldest continuously coeducational school in New York City, serves college-bound day students in Kindergarten-Grade 12. Walters was proud to work on this revitalization project and it’s great to see some images of the final product.
Walters Inc. provided detailing, engineering, fabrication and delivery and Metropolitan Walters was responsible for the installation. We worked with existing buildings and incorporated new material. Bridging between old and new is a five-story tall skylit gallery, with exposed steel bracing, which separates the new building from the historic façades.
Hunter Hall was topped off with a 10 Ton structural steel play roof that encloses a spring isolated double slab assembly with synthetic turf finish. The project included five floor deep trusses which span 60 feet and make up the 2nd and 3rd floors. It looks great and creates a warm, bright and inviting space for everyone!
Friends Seminary gave us a sneek peak into how 140 tons of steel was erected atop Hunter Hall. This incredibly efficient process unfolded along 16th Street.
