Lincoln Square Synagogue

New York, NY

GMS provided supplemental façade consulting and supplemental structural engineering for this new 6-story synagogue on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The building envelope includes an innovative ribbon-like curtain wall, stone, and punched windows.

Our participation included specialty support during design, peer review of proposed highly custom ribbon curtain-wall, review of shop drawings, construction support, site inspection of curtain wall and stone, as well as field testing of curtain wall during construction.
