When this 58-floor office building at Hudson Yards needed electrical rooms, we were chosen as the basis of design because of our trusted ability to improve project schedule while maintaining project quality.
This project initially posed a series of challenges: manpower shortage due to the pandemic, tight schedule and limited space on the high-rise’s rooftop. We carefully evaluated the situation and decided with the client on a prefab approach.
Our team then worked with Epsilon Industries and built 3 large pre-constructed switchgear rooms encompassing all needed equipment in only about 4 weeks, thanks to the concurrent and thus more efficient workflow in the factory. When these modular rooms were shipped to the site, they were directly lifted to the rooftop in 6 crane picks, as opposed to 10 crane picks and 45 pieces of other equipment (plus all associated conduits & wires) in client’s original estimate.
Prefabricated approach helped us save a great amount of time, field work, labor cost, and allowed this project to bypass all limitations and be completed on schedule.
