    General Contractor

After the main electrical feed to the building failed, it was determined that a new service was required to be installed from the underground ConEdison vault up to the switchgear room on the 36th Floor.

The new work consisted of a new concrete encased riser to be installed in an existing 5’ x 10’ utility shaft way spanning from the bottom to the top of the building. The only access into the shaft was through a 24” x 24” hatch located every 6 floors. The building was 100% occupied by commercial tenants.

F&S engineered and installed a suspended scaffold inside the small shaftway rising over 400 feet high. From the scaffold, F&S installed structural supports, formed and poured a new duct encasement and made structural improvements to the shaftway. All work was performed and managed by F&S.

After completion of the project, Empire State Realty Trust hired F&S to demolish an existing two floor bank which included a steel plated vault in the basement. After the demolition, F&S performed the landlord portion of the new tenant fit out. As the General Contractor, F&S self-performed all structural and miscellaneous steel, carpentry, concrete and terrazzo restoration and general construction. After delivering the project early, under budget, Maison Kaiser occupied the space for their restaurant.
