Horace Mann School North Campus Addition
Horace Mann School (HMS), a 128-year-old nationally-renowned independent college preparatory school, has occupied it’s current campus in the Bronx since 1914 and has expanded over the years to include a nursery division, lower division campus, and a middle and upper division campus. Hunter Roberts completed the expansion of Horace Mann’s North Campus. The project called for a new science building, a new aquatics center, a vestibule addition, renovation of the existing Prettyman Gymnasium facility, the renovation of the Pforzheimer classroom building, and new sitework. Hunter Roberts provided pre-construction services including estimates, variance studies, value engineering, and construction schedules to Horace Mann as the school’s board of trustees considered many options to best renovate the independent college preparatory school. Hunter Roberts remediated the contaminated soil in the center of the North Campus project area before breaking ground on the new Science Center and new Aquatics Center, adjacent to one another. At Prettyman Gymnasium, a new vestibule was built on the existing building, followed by a complete gut rehabilitation of Prettyman, including the in-fill of the building’s pool and a new fitness center constructed in its place. At Pforzheimer Hall, science laboratories were renovated and modernized. Rounding out the project scope is the construction of new tennis courts and site landscaping.
