The Related Companies hired Tishman Construction to provide construction management services for its new mixed-use development, located on West 42nd Street in Manhattan. The 60-story residential complex will have over 800 housing units, including 163 low-income residences, a Yotel hotel, and the Signature Center, an off-Broadway theater complex designed by Frank Gehry.
Tishman overcame a complex hurdle requiring detailed coordination between the trades during the construction of the 24th floor slab and pads for mechanical equipment to be installed there, including 12 large hot water heaters, seven plate-frame heat exchangers, three large preassembled pump units, and a large emergency generator. Tishman completed all of this work, plus pouring the slab for the 25th floor, within a three-day period. Framing of the 25th floor took place around the equipment.
The project is being designed and built to LEED® Silver standards.
