Client: Dutchess BOCES Alternative High School @ Salt Point Campus
Project Scope: A 69,000sf Alternative High School will cerate a permanent and suitable home for a significantly underserved county-wide student body. The programs currently located at the BETA rental site will be relocated and consolidated to the Salt Point Campus. The new facility is conceived as a community asset with a state-of-the-art conference center available to all component Districts and community organizations. Paired renovations of the Career & Technical Institute will address aging facilities and have been planned to maximize space utilization during the day and evening programming opportunities for the Adult Learning Institute. This project is paired with a separate Energy Performance Project.
The Ossining Children’s Center held a
groundbreaking ceremony on June 24, 2019 marking the beginning of construction on
the new Rebecca and Arthur Samberg Building at 32 State Street in Ossining, NY.
As the first childcare facility in the region and serving the community for 125
years since 1895, the new facility will allow the Ossining Children’s Center to
meet the growing demand for childcare and preschool programs within a single
The Ossining Children’s Center program is
currently housed in two buildings on South Highland Avenue as well as rented
space at a nearby church. The center’s ability to meet the needs of the
community has been challenged by the limitations of its current facilities.
The new 27,000sf childcare and education
center will be a transformative asset for the Ossining community. It is
thoughtfully oriented on the 2.5-acre site to optimize the views of the Hudson
River. The Center will include nine classrooms, five toddler and infant rooms,
three outdoor play areas, a junior turf athletic field, staff and
administrative offices, a multi-purpose room, a conference room and kitchen. The
design solution blends traditional and contemporary approaches that creates a
modern, progressive and nurturing learning environment while allowing the new
building to fit within the aesthetic of the adjacent “cottage-like” office
buildings on State Street.
“KG+D is proud to partner with the Ossining Children’s Center to complete this dynamic new childcare and educational facility,” said Erik A. Kaeyer, Vice President of KG+D Architects. “The new Rebecca and Arthur Samberg Building was designed to support and accommodate the Ossining Children’s Center’s excellent programming and to allow the Center to effectively serve more of the families in the Ossining community for another 125 years.”
The construction will commence immediately
with the project slated to be complete by September 2020.
