Project Key Features

The project involved the meticulous construction of a new 7-story high-end residential condominium building, encompassing a cellar level, with an approximate total area of 55,250 gross square feet (gsf). GEA was tasked with providing comprehensive Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Sprinkler (MEPS) design services, crucial for ensuring the building’s functionality, safety, and efficiency. Under the agreement, GEA committed to delivering the MEPS set for initial filing with the NYC Department of Buildings by October 10, 2012, contingent upon receiving architectural background drawings eight weeks prior.

The development features 10 high-end condominium residences, each meticulously designed to offer luxurious living spaces. From the outset, GEA’s focus was on optimizing the MEP systems to meet the unique demands of upscale residential living. This included designing state-of-the-art HVAC systems to ensure optimal indoor comfort and air quality, as well as implementing efficient electrical and plumbing systems to support the building’s sophisticated amenities and infrastructure.

In addition to the architectural considerations, GEA played a pivotal role in integrating MEP systems seamlessly into the building’s design. This involved careful coordination with the architectural and structural elements to ensure optimal space utilization and aesthetic harmony. From the basement to the penthouse levels, GEA’s MEP design solutions were tailored to enhance the overall livability and functionality of the condominium units, while adhering to stringent regulatory standards and industry best practices.
