Completion date


DRPILLA is delivering geotechnical analysis, site/civil planning, and structural design services to support the construction of the seven-story Academic Leadership Charter School situated at 356-62 E 139th Street. This innovative project will result in a 100-foot-tall building with a total area of 60,000 square feet, housing a diverse array of facilities including a gymnasium, cafeteria, and a total of thirty-one classrooms distributed across the fourth to seventh floors. Additionally, an outdoor play area will be created on the rooftop, enhancing recreational opportunities for the students. To accommodate the needs of teachers and parents, the development will also feature 100 parking spaces.

Engineering Bright Futures

Our team is implementing a design that features steel floor beams combined with a lightweight concrete deck. This combination provides the necessary support for the building’s structure. For lateral stability, the project incorporates a dual system approach, utilizing steel moment frames in the longitudinal direction and shear walls in the transverse direction. This combination ensures the building’s resilience and safety in the face of various forces and conditions.
