Our Lady of Lourdes 3K School
Wins Excellence in Design Award. 

BRAVO Group is proud to share that our project, Our Lady of Lourdes 3K School, has been honored with an award for Excellence in Design from the Queens Chamber of Commerce.

Ehab Shehata, BRAVO’s President and CEO, accepted the award from Nash Roe, Associate Treasurer at Queens Chamber of Commerce. Ehab is proudest of our work with NYC-SCA.

Schools perform a vital role in the community and contribute to its identity. Education is of paramount importance today and this 3K school will help generations of children start their life-long learning in the best possible way. We are pleased to help realize this work for the New York City School Construction Authority and Queens Village.

Velocity Architects and Engineers, working for the New York City School Construction Authority as its design consultant, coordinated closely with both the Parish and NYC-SCA to convert this building into a 3K program to serve the community and the children. The project also brought a second life to a beloved neighborhood landmark.

Key elements of the project involved renovating the interior space, upgrading all building systems, and transforming a portion of the existing asphalt parking lot area into an early childhood playground haven. We provided comprehensive architecture and engineering construction documents as well as construction administration support.

Congratulations to the community for recovering a lost asset, to NYC-SCA for another successful project, and to our team for well-deserved recognition.
