Our Capital Projects Division of architects and construction specialists possesses the on-site experience and technical knowledge to drive even the most complex and technically challenging projects to successful completion.
Establishing project scope and budget is a critical first step of capital project planning that outlines the project’s needs, deliverables, tasks, deadlines, and costs. Project failures are often caused by cost and schedule overruns which stem from poor or delayed scope definitions. Having a well-defined and realistic scope prior to the start of a project dramatically increases its success.
Façade restoration is essential to building maintenance and upkeep. Not only does it ensure that safety codes are being met, but it raises the aesthetic value of your property. Façade damage is cumulative and often builds up slowly over time. Though required for many buildings, it is not mandatory for all (depending on height and number of floors,) so unless regular inspections are performed, it is easy to miss critical issues that could become hazardous if left unaddressed.
Elevator modernization improves safety standards and performance that inevitably deteriorates over time. An elevator’s service life is approximately 20 years, at which point performance capabilities start to decrease. This can result in breakdowns, a need for frequent maintenance, slow mobility, etc. New codes also factor into the need for significant overhaul or replacement. Modernizing elevators increases their efficiency, saves on energy costs, and ensures resident safety.
Heating and hot water systems also have a design life. This goes for fuel systems supplying this equipment as well as domestic gas to individual units. Even with proper maintenance, boilers and plumbing corrode to the point that replacement allows for more efficient equipment as well as lower maintenance and operational costs. Developing a schedule (as replacement involves decommissioning of equipment and thereby the usual supply of heat and/or hot water) is as important as the scope, options, and implementation of the overall installation plan.
Many buildings in NYC are landmarks or historical sites. Reconstruction is essential to keeping the structures up to safety code while preserving their historic design and significance. Reconstruction requires an individualized approach to each project and a high level of precision and nuance.
A roof is an integral part of any building’s envelope, as it is tasked with protecting the entire structure. Eventually, roof replacement is necessary for all buildings as roofing materials inevitably deteriorate. When repairs are no longer sufficient for roof effectiveness, a complete new roof installation will need to be considered.
Though not necessarily critical to the same extent as structural and systems upgrades, enhancement of amenity spaces such as gyms, pools, laundry-rooms, and roof decks, as well as building aesthetics such as entry lobbies and hallway alterations, are critical in a building’s ability to stay current and appealing. Due to such upgrades typically being non-emergent, identifying a scope and cost allows for proper scheduling into the overall capital improvement plan of a building.
