Chelsea Vocational HS – Manhattan
Major reconstruction of decorative parapets in order to restore this landmark building to its original design. The 16’ high parapets were built with reinforced concrete masonry and steel framing, and were clad on the exterior with new terra cotta units, slate mansard roofing, and an architectural copper cornice. The building received major exterior masonry restoration as well as some minor interior repairs. The highlight of this project is the 2011 North American Copper in Architecture Award that Technico received as a winner in restoration.
