MODERN MEDICAL FACILITY
135 E 47TH STREET
40 TENTH AVENUE – TENANT FIT-OUT WORK
The 6th floor is Aquarian Holdings LLP
The 7th floor is RTW Investments
The interesting story with this is that Aurora asked us to sit next to them with design team members in order to develop a useable floorplan that they could take off the shelf and build on almost any floor in this building, in order to avail a potential tenant of that option. Finishes, colors, and certain things could be changed to suit the tenant but the basic set up is already done. This was Matt Abreu’s approach to making things easier to lease up and he holds a little more control with his design and his CM (US) building it. It give potential tenants options.
Each floor was about $2,000,000 in construction.
NYU POLY-CITE GAME LAB
Cauldwell Wingate was retained as Construction Manager to complete the 3,000sf fit-out of a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary graduate research lab designed to foster an environment of innovation, collaboration, and learning in the development of research projects involving educational games and movement-based interfaces. The work required careful planning, detailed site logistics, and a rigorous safety program to ensure that disruptions to the University’s ongoing operations were minimized. The final project included custom lighting, whiteboards across a full wall, and numerous computer stations.
ACADEMY OF MOUNT SAINT URSULA
The Academy of Mount Saint Ursula High School retained Cauldwell Wingate as General Contractor for the phased construction of new science laboratories. Phase I required the construction of temporary science laboratories to accommodate programming requirements while the new labs were under construction. Phase II of the project included the gut-renovation of existing lab spaces, including new laboratory millwork, gas and water hookups, showers, and emergency eyewash areas. In addition, the laboratories were outfitted with new exteriors windows and casings. Protection and safety programs were designed to accommodate working in an occupied setting, and all work was coordinated with school officials to minimize disruptions to ongoing school operations.
NYU TANDON SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING BERN DIBNER LIBRARY
Cauldwell Wingate was retained as Construction Manager to complete the 3,000sf fit-out of the cutting-edge Center of Innovation for Technology and Entertainment (CITE) lab, an interdisciplinary graduate research lab designed to foster an environment of innovation, collaboration and learning to encourage the development of research projects involving games for learning and movement-based interfaces. The work included demolition and relocation of walls, cosmetic upgrades and associated mechanical and electrical upgrades. Cauldwell Wingate also completed an upgrade of existing smoke purge and fire alarm systems throughout the entire ~55,000sf building. The work involved replacing the original pneumatic actuators on the existing fire smoke dampers with electric actuators and included new wiring back to the associated panels, all work occurring on a third shift while the building remained occupied.
EYETECH PHARMACEUTICALS – 3 TIMES SQUARE
Cauldwell Wingate performed preconstruction services for the renovation of the 32,000sf corporate headquarters of an aggressively expanding pharmaceutical firm. This project was phased within an occupied environment, necessitating a transparent transition from existing space to new corporate model. The scope of the project included high-end millwork finishes, metal and glass office fronts, sensitive testing laboratories, and full upgrade of mechanical, electrical and data systems.
NYU MEYER COMPLEX PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY LAB
Cauldwell Wingate was engaged by New York University as a Construction Manager to provide preconstruction and construction management services for their new physical chemistry lab. The project was a build-out of a chemical synthesis lab and optical physics laboratories. The scope consisted of the gut renovation of existing facilities including the installation of high-precision self-leveling lab tables, fume hoods, casework, extensive lab gases and water hookups, showers and emergency eyewash areas, and safety monitoring devices for the state-of-the-art research facility. In addition, extensive infrastructure was required to support the lab and maintain ongoing operation of adjacent animal laboratories including new rooftop exhaust and customized air handling equipment, heat exchangers and electrical risers. The project was coordinated to accommodate school schedules and site safety conditions.
