Clifton Car Maintenance Shop

di Domenico + Partners was selected as lead designer of a team for the design and construction of the new Clifton Car Maintenance Shop in Staten Island. The goal of the new shop is to provide a framework for an improved, cost-effective NYCT facility that emphasizes energy efficiency and flood resiliency. The building’s windows feature high performance glazing, providing ample daylighting for the facility’s first floor. The roofing will utilize a sustainable, white EPDM system, a durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane. The exterior envelope features recycled and renewable construction materials and is designed for SLOSH Category 2 Hurricane resiliency, which will be a reliable and effective defense barrier against damaging levels of flood water. The shop will meet or exceed NYCT’s overall efficiency goal of 20% energy-use reduction, and is on track for completion in 2020.
