Far Hills Country Day School (FHCDS) is a coeducational day school for Pre-K through 8th grade, focused on instruction that combines academic excellence and character development. This project was part of an ongoing 5-year building envelope improvement plan.
The Upper & Intermediate Schools’ existing roof areas were out of warranty/near the end of their useful life. USA made improvements to the roof that eliminated existing roof leaks and deterioration, as well as provided a more efficient thermal barrier. Additionally, the specified roof system was built to allow placement of future solar panels. The upgraded look of the Intermediate School’s sloped aluminum ribbed roof was designed to be cohesive with the school’s updated campus Master Plan.
In order to maintain the operations and appearance of the campus throughout construction, phasing and staging was critical to the project. The school continually offers tours to prospective parents/students, therefore maintaining a clean, manicured appearance during construction was vital to the project’s success. USA further provided field investigations and testing, construction documents and technical specifications, and contract administration during the entire construction phase until project close-out.
