Cerami was retained to provide information technology, security and acoustical services for the new YMCA campus located in the northeast Bronx Community District 12, next to NYCHA’s Baychester and Edenwald Houses.
The 50,000 square foot recreational facility includes two swimming pools, a 7,200 square foot dividable gymnasium, a wellness center, childcare, group exercise studios and sub-dividable community and multipurpose rooms. It also consists of three pavilions connected by a glass corridor, in which the main pavilion will open onto a plaza.
Signature Solution: Cerami ensured building infrastructure supported YMCA’s technology requirements. High-density ubiquitous wireless network availability was integrated throughout the facility for all YMCA employees and guests. Electronic Security Systems were also implemented throughout the facility. Security systems include Access Control and Video Surveillance, which restricts access in critical areas and provide video surveillance and recording.
Furthermore, our acoustics team established acoustical criteria for all occupied spaces and also provided recommendations for finishes and partitions to ensure sound isolation and privacy.
