345 Park Avenue South

New York, New York

James E. Fitzgerald partnered with Digitas to develop the advertising agency’s first multi-media conference center. The project included the creation of a large, open, multi-use lounge area used for presentations and conferencing, featuring a dynamic backlit LED lighting element contained in a custom metal mesh column, Stone flooring, a floating fabric ceiling system fabricated in France, back painted glass panels with integrated recessed LED screens, Modernfold movable glass and fabric partitions, and a custom millwork bar and café area.

The conference rooms were designed to be flexible and able to be reconfigured in order to accommodate larger sized groups.

The state-of-the-art audiovisual and lighting solutions incorporate a multi-scene dimming with automated shades integrated into the master control system of the facility.


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.

Confidential Client

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.

Disney New

Amsterdam Theatre

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.
