As done before with the elliptical profile design of the new auditorium and gymnasium building at Bergen County Vocational Technical School, Architect Ronald Schmidt once again created a unique, technical fascia in the trapazoidal design of this new gymnasium and auditorium structure.

With Rinaldi’s value-engineering abilities, the choice of a momlithicpoured rubber floor versus tongueand-groove, hard maple wood, enabled the Northvale Board of Education to maintain the budgetary requirements of their bond referendum for the project.

In bringing together a new addition with modifications and alterations to an existing, fully-operational facility, Rinaldi had to phase construction activities, often performing shift work around the clock, working holidays and weekends to complete this project in time for September’s new school’s new school year.
