Challenge
The footprint of the new laboratory building is directly above the bustling FDR expressway. Since this expressway is integral to commuters it could not be closed down to allow for construction.
Solution
Our team developed a building envelope solution that could be assembled on the structural frame of the building and was constructed off-site, transported by barge to the site, and lifted into place above the FDR expressway. Careful consideration was given to the weight of each module as they were transported to the site and lifted into place by cranes from barges on the East River. The strategy was for the modules to serve as staging areas for the remainder of the work to progress without disruption to the expressway below.
