This 320,000 sf, 9-floor project included creating huge communicating stair openings throughout the building, replacing all shear elements of the building with BRB’s, creating new structural concrete diaphragms, and reinforcing 75% of the columns and 25% of the beams. These extensive structural modifications were made to support the addition of rooftop garden terraces as well as the interior openings.

The project includes interior fit-out, multiple slab openings and stair systems, modifications of existing exit stair systems, two front-of-house commercial kitchens totaling 9,000 sf, cafeteria, timber structures consisting of indoor bleachers and massive outdoor trellis structures, and outdoor deck installations at five deck locations totaling 27,000 sf. The scope also includes interior finishes, structures, and landscaping. Extensive BIM coordination of the design was implemented on the project.
