ROOF DECK DESIGN
302 WEST 86TH STREET, NEW YORK, NY
302 West 86th Street is a pre-war residential building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. It is of steel-frame bonded masonry construction with terra-cotta ornamentation.
The project consisted of the installation of a raised roof deck on a steel structure topped with concrete pavers and limited areas of Ipe wood decking. A new Red Cedar pergola with stainless steel fastener plates was designed and constructed as part of the new roof deck. The existing roof was replaced when the structure of the deck was installed since direct attachment to the steel columns at the top floor was required.
Additional project work included the restoration of deteriorated masonry and terra-cotta on all façades of the building.
