Spring Street Salt Shed Receives Award of Merit from NYC Concrete Industry Board

The Spring Street Salt Shed, an award-winning project for the New York Department of Sanitation, was recently chosen to receive the 2016 Concrete Industry Board Award of Merit – Public Works from the New York City Concrete Industry Board, a chapter of the American Concrete Institute. According to the Concrete Industry Board, the award is presented for superior work which exemplifies quality concrete.

The Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage and Spring Street Salt Shed have received numerous accolades for innovative design, its marriage of beauty and technology, and the structures’ contribution to New York’s built environment. Burns is thrilled to have been part of the team that turned this ambitious design into reality, and helped The New York Department of Sanitation (DSNY) achieve LEED Gold certification for the environmentally sensitive garage. These new structures elevate the gritty character of their industrial operations, and blend naturally into their residential neighborhood.
