PROJECT OVERVIEW
Queens’ new 75,000-square-foot municipal garage needed to provide accommodation for climate-sensitive vehicles, offices, truck washing, snowplow mounting, vehicle repair, and maintenance. To give this building the striking design administrators wanted while ensuring the durability it would need to be ready to prep vehicles to combat harsh weather, designers clad the structure with architectural precast concrete panels.

PRECAST SOLUTION
The facility, a single-story, steel-framed building with a mezzanine, had its front façade faced with a curved-glass curtain wall with both clear, shimmering shadowbox and spandrel glass bands atop a limestone base. The rest of the building is clad in textured and flat precast concrete panels.

The precast concrete panels provided a robust material and were easy to erect quickly. The panels were chosen because their aesthetic versatility could provide subtle changes in light and shadow to bring out different details.
