After two decades of providing construction management services for this multi-national law firm, Structure Tone completed the third restack of their New York office. Built in six phases, this 220,000sf office project involved the full-gut, demolition, and fit-out of five floors. A logistical challenge of this internal restack was to ensure a smooth transition for the client to move from floor to floor.
Phases 1-4 consisted of general practice floors which included interior and perimeter offices combined with open area workstations on each side. In addition to the gut and build-out of all core bathrooms, the scope consisted of elevator lobbies, pantries, lounges with AV amenities, and three new sets of internal stairs.
Phases 5-6 of this renovation consisted of an expansive double-height reception area that welcomes visitors into a state-of-the-art conference center. This area was built over two phases since the client always required a half-floor of conference space. The multi-purpose room was built with high-tech AV and required PA/TCO permits due to the 75+ occupancy load. In order to ensure seamless operations, our team built a temporary reception so the existing occupied area could operate properly with a reception. The challenge was not only demolishing half the floor while keeping the other half active but working adjacent to an occupied conference center space.
