J.T. Magen builds  new sustainable structure and facilities for Trevor Day School.

To accommodate the school's planned 25 percent increase in middle and high school enrollment, the Trevor Day School built a new state-of-the-art, LEED-certified, 12-story building with one below-grade level.

The building is 210 feet high, with an 85-foot-high masonry base for most of the public and larger group spaces, including the auditorium, gymnasium, cafeteria, library, and music rehearsal spaces. The school is heated and cooled with a closed loop “energy pile” geothermal system, one of the first systems of its kind in the U.S.

This project was especially significant because it was the first instance in which energy piles were used in New York City, and was one of the first projects to contribute to Mayor Bill de Blasio's goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050.
