NYU Langone Cobble Hill, Ambulatory Care Center


Needing to expand and limited by its campus constraints, NYU Langone decided to develop a new ambulatory care center in Cobble Hill. The five-story structure replaces an existing Long Island College Hospital building and brings a new emergency department, outpatient surgery center, cancer center, and diagnostic imaging center to the neighborhood. SGH consulted on the facade design for the project.

SGH consulted on the facade, including custom, unitized aluminum-framed fenestration, metal panels, and terra cotta rainscreen panels. We worked closely with the design team and helped them with the following:

  • Selecting wall systems and materials
  • Developing details for the wall systems and transitions to adjacent enclosure systems
  • Preparing project specifications related to the facade work
  • Collaborating with a design-assist contractor to further refine the design
  • Evaluating the energy performance of the facade
  • Visiting the unitized curtain wall panels manufacturing plant to observe their fabrication and QA/QC processes
  • Consulting on a performance mockup of the exterior wall assemblies and witnessing air/water infiltration testing
  • Providing construction phase services, including reviewing submittals, visiting the site to observe ongoing construction, witnessing performance testing of the installed facade, and helping the project team address field conditions
