PS 233 is one of four small schools built in various neighborhoods to accommodate the needs of the surrounding communities. Designed to fit in a neighborhood of single-family residences, PS 233 was specially designed for mentally and physically handicapped students.
Structural features include:
- New steel frame with poured-in place concrete slabs on precast plank floors.
- Links that connect these new additions to the original structures at multiple elevations.
- Expressed steel truss structure at various locations such as the cafeteria and gymnasium.
- Production of an architecturally sensitive structure that is also within budget and time constraints.
