NYC Financial Headquarters
When a global financial firm decided it was time to renovate its flagship headquarters in Midtown Manhattan, it sought out the services of Wyanoke Builders. In collaboration with Tirmizi Campbell, Wyanoke Builders designed and then renovated the firm’s lobby and suite of conference rooms.
Italian marble tile and glass conference room fronts were installed, replacing the old wooden floors and sheetrock walls. The outdated lay-in ceilings were removed, mechanical systems upgraded and new, higher ceilings installed. The new reception desk was custom fabricated from Bianco Dolomiti marble, which was also used to clad the lobby walls. The new lighting package included a mix of recessed fixtures, LED cove lights, concealed emergency lighting and other unique ceiling fixtures. The bathrooms – one renovated, the other newly constructed – both received a mix of marble and glass tile, full wall mirrors and plumbing fixtures from Toto, Grohe and Robern.
Other aspects of the renovation included a brand new AV infrastructure enabling the firm to video conference with its clients and offices around the world, custom fabric-wrapped panels in the conference to improve acoustics and custom vinyl graphics at the building facade & conference room fronts.
