The new Powel Elementary and Science Leadership Academy Middle School (P-SLAMS) was recently awarded a 2021 Award for Excellence from ULI Philadelphia in "public-private partnerships, education development, and community engagement." In an interview with ULI, John Fry, President of Drexel University, said, "What stood out for me was not the great public-private collaboration that created this new public school facility, but the energy and excitement of the children from Powel and SLA Middle School... It was their school, and the middle schooler from SLA Middle School said it best when she said, 'this will be our home.'”
Rogers Partners joined Mayor de Blasio, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC), Nanotronics, Empire State Development (ESD) and CUNY's Medgar Evers College for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of Nanotronics' flagship manufacturing center located in the Navy Yard's historic Building 20, a 150-year-old former shipbuilding factory.
We are thrilled to have collaborated with Nanotronics on the design of this - in the words of Matthew Putman, CEO and cofounder of Nanotronics - “intelligent factory where robotics, AI, and humans can work together to create a sustainable future.”
