Manhattan, NY JRM Construction Management has completed the interior fit-out for the fourth floor of the Durst Organization’s 4 Times Sq. office skyscraper. The fourth floor provides unique amenities curated for the sustainable space, which is designed to promote wellness and community.
JRM worked with Studios Architecture and ME Engineers to deliver the $30 million, 40,000 s/f interior fit out to the client’s satisfaction. The reimagined amenity floor includes a modern take on Frank Gehry Cafeteria, a live Green Wall, a chef Claus Meyer-managed food eatery and Convene’s private and open event spaces. The floor’s servery is comprised of five independent food stations, including custom lattice menu boards.
The installation of the Frank Ghery Double Laminated Custom Compound Curved Glass was done in an effort to accentuate the rounded design of the glass, featured in the fourth-floor amenity space. Leather upholstery can be found throughout the café seating area. In addition to the Frank Ghery cafeteria, a custom floor to ceiling Green Wall was fitted with over 2,000 live plants and integrated with the lighting, HVAC and plumbing systems to maintain the plants properly in an indoor environment.
The team also outfitted the forum, a public assembly space located in Convene’s conference center on the floor which can hold 190 occupants. Acoustics and fire rating requirements played a role in building this room, resulting in the implementation of a total door system and Filzfelt panels on the walls for aesthetics and acoustics.
Other unique elements include 60-foot Planar AV Wall, Decoustics microperforated panels fabricated in Switzerland, fumed Madera oak millwork and star silent ceilings.
“Durst has elevated this iconic 4 Time Square location to provide the ultimate, modern tenant experience, and we are so proud to have been part of the project team that made their vision a reality through collaboration,” said JRM project manager, Jason Stuart.
