Massive School Renovation Designed by architect Mitchell/Giurgola, the 105,000-square-foot construction of Public School 56 at 250 Kramer Avenue in Staten Island took Navillus just five months to complete.
As a multi-million dollar project, the K-5 school incorporated substantial quantities of materials into its four-story construction. Navillus used 60,000 square feet of glazed block partitions, 72,000 square feet of brickwork and 160,000 square feet of block work, to create the school’s dynamic architectural features. These features include a curved brick facade and multicolored glazed block throughout the interior.
After completion of this prototype school, Navillus was hired to complete the identical school P.S. 6 in Staten Island.
