SMACNA contractor ASM Mechanical Systems of Ridgewood, N.Y., recently was recognized as one of Engineering News-Record magazine’s New York edition Best Projects 2016.
ASM Mechanical received an award of merit (government/public category) for their work on the Public Safety Answering Center II in the Bronx.
ASM provided full mechanical work on the 11-story, 450,00 square-foot, cube-shaped building, which was designed to operate continually under adverse conditions and provide redundancy to the city’s primary call center. The new center is equipped to handle 50,000 emergency calls per hour and 11 million “911” calls a year.
ASM Mechanical Systems is part of AABCO Sheet Metal Co. Inc. and is operated by former SMACNA President Ron Palmerick (2007-2008).
The project was one of 100 winners located in New York and New Jersey. Work was evaluated on the ability of the project team to overcome challenges, contribution to the industry and community, safety, and construction and design quality.
