Mixed Use - Office/Warehouse

This design/build project involved the design of a 350,000 square foot, pre-engineered, distribution/warehouse building with an attached 11,000 square foot, one-story brick office building in Montgomery, New York. The warehouse was designed with several fire rated “interior spaces” (i.e. shipping/delivery, two floor office area, bathroom cores), 28 loading docks with overhead doors, 8 foot high, “split face” concrete block exterior walls and a separate “pump house” for fire suppression. The attached office area is a conventional steel frame building with bathrooms, conference rooms and administrative areas.

This was a significant and large-scale project in which we provided architectural services and were involved with many phases of the construction as a project manager. Due to the fast-track nature of this design/build project, we teamed with the construction manager and general contractor to successfully expedite the construction schedule and maintain the budget constraints.

Unique to this project was the regulatory permitting, which required the preparation of documents to secure the approval of an area and egress variance from the State. The entire project, including the approval process, was completed within 10 months, and within the contract stipulated budget.

Mixed Use - Office/Industrial

This design/build project involved the construction a new two story, 10,000 square foot office building within the structure of a 120,000 square foot industrial building in Yonkers, New York. The fire-rated, enclosed office building was designed with a steel frame/concrete deck structure, offices, bathrooms, conference room spaces, egress stair enclosures leading to the exterior and a computer clean room. The “exterior walls” of the office building were constructed with metal studs.
Regulatory permitting included the securing of approvals from the local building department, and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. Inspections were conducted and approved by the Port Authority and independent testing agencies to verify compliance with the contract specifications.

Phase Two of this project involved the design of major renovations to the existing building, including a new 120-foot long truss (and sequence documents) to replace several building columns and a new loading dock/concrete ramp area with new overhead doors cut into the existing exterior wall.

Mixed Use - Office/Commercial

This design/build project involved the design of a new 20,000 square foot, two-story office building within the shell of a 100,000 square foot, one-story warehouse building in New Windsor, New York. The fire rated, enclosed office building was designed with steel frame/concrete deck structure, and contains a new, two-story atrium/lobby space, an elevator core, new offices, bathrooms, conference rooms and work areas. The existing exterior metal panel wall system was removed and a new, 200-foot long “glazed curtain wall” was applied to the exterior of the existing building.
Phase Two of this project included the design of a new “break room” area with bathrooms and a 4,000 square foot, two story, office addition to the existing building with bathrooms, two egress stair enclosures and concrete block exterior walls.

Mixed Use - Office/Dormitory

NOT FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATION
Monroe, New York


DTM Development, Ltd. and David Niemotko Architects, P.C. was selected for this design/build project which consisted of the construction of a new, 3 story addition in context with the original “turn of the century” house. The existing building houses administration offices and educational areas. The addition houses 6 new “dormitories” for use by the members, new bathrooms and a new meeting room. There is a fire rated barrier between the new and the existing structure. The site development included a new septic system. Regulatory permitting involved the Building Department and a successful “appeal” application to the NYS State Codes Division to relieve the Owner of a sprinkler requirement.

Mixed Use - Retail/Apartments

This architecture project involves the design of a new 16,000 square foot, two-story retail / apartment building. In order to reflect the historic nature of a railroad station that existed on the site decades ago, the exterior design utilizes brick and stucco materials and features a lower level pedestrian roof detailed with wood “brackets”. The retail spaces will have storefronts and will be accessible from the street level. The apartment level will be accessible from an “entrance vestibule” in the back of the property. A parking area is located on the property. There will be an open corridor through the center of the building, which will allow pedestrians direct access from the parking area to the front of the building. The mechanical equipment will be housed in the third-floor penthouse located at the center of the building.
