Project Overview:

2 Times Square is a concrete structural frame with a composite envelope that includes areas of brick cavity walls, structurally glazed aluminum, and a glass curtain wall.

HLZA investigated the condition of the exterior envelope, including the building’s waterproofing elements, and projected repair costs through the next two maintenance cycles. HLZA then assisted in developing the most effective scope of work for the following maintenance cycle. Our team then helped develop the most effective scope of work for the recently completed maintenance cycle. Collaborating closely with the management company, tenants, and restoration contractors, HLZA coordinated all aspects of the restoration project, from the initial bidding stage through approvals, and closeout.

HLZA was the lead engineer and architect for the facilities condition assessment of this property for all architectural and MEP/FP components. Our team assessed the building to determine deficiencies, code compliance, adherence to proper installation methods, and useful life information. HLZA also performed an Energy Audit for compliance with Local Law 87.
