A state-of-the-art polyurethane floor recently installed in the soon-to-be opened $750 million NYPD training ground in College Point has already began to warp and buckle and will need to be torn out and replaced — possibly delaying the facility’s opening, police officials confirmed Friday.
“There was a defect problem with the new gym floor,” NYPD spokesman Stephen Davis said.
The NYPD alerted the city’s Department of Design and Construction about the defect.
The agency will rectify the problem with the contractor, Davis said, referring all questions about the scope of the damage and repair costs and timelines to the DDC. The DDC did not return a call for comment Friday night.
