In 2015, a redevelopment was planned to turn a portion of 375 Pearl Street originally purposed for data center and technology, to commercial offices. Included in this scope of work was the removal of the existing limestone wall and installation of glass on the top 17 floors of the building.
F&S was contracted to build all temporary structures and protection to support the removal of exterior walls, all new concrete infills, interior carpentry, waterproofing and masonry.
We built the infrastructure required for a newly built Starbucks on ground level. The existing granite facade was demolished and replaced with a new storefront system.
We engineered and installed the massive antenna structure atop the iconic skyscraper. F&S self-performed structural and miscellaneous steel, concrete, waterproofing. We also took responsibility for all logistical planning required to erect this massive structure on top of an occupied building. F&S self-performed all scaffolding, rigging and logistics required.
F&S performed landlord work for the commercial floors including elevator lobbies, bathrooms, selective demolition, spray insulation, architectural ceilings and new elevator lobbies.
We were hired to install a new heating and cooling system for the commercial floors of the building. F&S provided all infrastructure and general construction as required to install the largest VRF system in North America. This work included a new rooftop mechanical structure, shaft work to distribute the mechanical system through the building and two new mechanical plants inside the building.
In order to service the access demands of the new building plan it became necessary to extend the low rise elevators 5 floors higher. This work involved moving the machine room up and clearing the way for construction of an extended elevator shaft. F&S self-performed all demolition, structural steel, concrete, interior carpentry and general construction to successfully complete the logistically impossible extension in an active building.
As part of the effort to deliver cell phone service and WiFi to the NYC subway system, F&S was hired to build a 11,000 sf hub for Transit Wireless inside Intergate.Manhattan. F&S' work included all tenant and landlord fitout. F&S self-performed all concrete, masonry, carpentry, structural steel, waterproof flooring and general construction. This project also included the installation of a new emergency generator plant inside the building. F&S was responsible for the infrastructure required to install new fuel riser enclosures to feed the generator plant, the fit-out of a new generator room and the infrastructure to feed emergency power through the occupied building.
