287 Park Avenue South

We are currently designing core and shell renovations to a nine-story building, over 120 years old. The gut renovations will enable the unoccupied building, originally constructed in 1893, to house new retail spaces on the cellar and ground floors, and modern offices on floors 2 - 9.

As part of our due diligence, we analyzed the building’s existing MEP/FP systems, including the heating/cooling systems, switchgears, switchrooms, power distribution, fire protection/sprinkler systems, sanitary stormwater and domestic water systems. We then advised CL Investment Group as to how to best approach the systems upgrade for their long-term business goals.

Our work now includes the design of all new infrastructure systems, including mechanical, electrical, and water service as well as a new fire alarm system, a new life safety generator and new boilers. The building will tie into the existing gas service and sanitary system. The infrastructure is being designed to support the potential increase in occupancy to 130 people per floor from its current occupancy of 60 people per floor.
