A global financial services firm embarked on a major phased renovation of their corporate headquarters in Midtown Manhattan. The project was designed by Robert A.M. Stern and mandated the delivery of a state-of-the-art work/client environment, with a high level of finish and detail.
Consolidating across three interconnecting floors, the program includes executive offices, enclosed and open area work space, a variety of conference facilities, food service, information technology and audio-visual infrastructure. Artwork was carefully integrated into the space and served as a central design element. To minimize interruptions to the firm’s operations, the project was delivered on a fast-track schedule.
Role + Responsibilities
Zubatkin first developed a Project Implementation Plan to align the project scope, budget and schedule. The report specifically outlined a strategy for the phasing, logistics and landlord coordination, as well as next steps for the project’s successful completion. The Zubatkin team subsequently oversaw the development and implementation of the contracting strategy and the design, construction and occupancy of the project. The firm was also responsible for managing the financial controls, administration and reporting. The In-House Technical Group assisted in the review of drawings and advised on technical issues relating to the construction, and furniture and equipment procurement.
The project was successfully delivered according to the budget and schedule.
