200 Madison Avenue
New York, New York
James E. Fitzgerald, Inc. constructed the new NYC headquarters for Garan. The space has a large, open floor plate with an exposed slab design which required
James E. Fitzgerald to extensively coordinate the various trades to achieve a highly organized layout for the various components such as ductwork, electrical conduits, cabling and lighting. The floors are a combination of polished concrete, stone and carpet; the reception and elevator lobby include custom millwork ceiling and wall features along with a custom illuminated reception desk; the office space consists of conference rooms/work rooms and a large café shared by clients and the staff.
1345 Avenue of the Americas
Top 2 Floors, New York, New York
James E. Fitzgerald, Inc. was selected by Gardiner
& Theobald and the project team to act as the
Construction Manager for the top two floors of 1345
Avenue of the Americas. The design includes materials and finishes that are as transparent as possible to accentuate the spectacular unobstructed views of central park. The project consists of a large conference center, open plan reception/lounge area with a central staircase, and open plan trading desks on raised floor.
The ceiling is organized in a modular system of metal pans to hold the light fixtures, air conditioning diffusers and sprinkler heads thus providing a “service zone” separated by unaltered, continuous oversized metal ceiling tiles.
A main computer room and several smaller cabling hubs were incorporated throughout the project providing the connectivity and network capacity for the trading operations. The finishes are ultra high end consisting of specialty glass, polished metal, stone and lacquered millwork.
Replacement of Rooftop Mammoth Units at 214 West 42nd Street, New York, New York
James E. Fitzgerald Inc. has been selected to replace
(3) rooftop Mammoth units on the historic New
Amsterdam Theater at 214 West 42nd Street for ABC
Disney. Because the scope of work is to be completed while the Theater is between shows, detailed critical path scheduling of all work and advance coordination of the various trades, supplied by both the owner and by James E. Fitzgerald, Inc., is of the utmost importance.
The equipment was pre-purchased and scheduled for delivery in a way so that all supplemental work, such as the replacement of the roof, piping, ductwork and associated electrical controls and infrastructure, can be phased ahead of the equipment replacement in order to efficiently utilize the manufacturing time of the units.
The installation and removal of the old equipment was scheduled to occur concurrently to minimize the required Department of
Transportation street closure permits and to use the crane in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
