Specialty Projects

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Our knowledge extends beyond architecture, and we’ve worked with public and private clients to deliver full service projects. We have handled special requests such as simulated firing ranges, ammunition storage buildings, high security detention centers in existing buildings etc. Our team strives to understand the client and develop a customized solution to fit their needs. Detailing is something we take pride in.

Sample Project: United States Postal Service
Morgan Processing & Distribution Center

Rehabilitation of various components of a 2,200,000 sf mid-rise (12 stories) distribution hub in mid-town Manhattan. The overall project was split into seven rehabilitation/renovation initiatives to:

    • accommodate additional occupancy
    • replace 1600 deteriorated building windows after consultation with State Historic Preservation
    • replace 58 outdated air-handlers and the entire Building Management System
    • replace roofs past their useful life, including replacement of one of the roofs with a 109,000 SF Green Roof System

The combined projects were geared towards a 30% min reduction in energy use over ASHRAE 90.1 (2004). Commissioning of newly installed building systems was an important aspect in both ensuring the target 31% reduction and also realizing the full value of a NYSERDA rebate estimated around $1,900,000. The project has won the ACEC (NY Chapter) Gold Award for Green Roof Design, NY CMAA Project of the Year Award for Energy upgrades.
