201 East 57th Street - M&B Building

Sciame was the Construction Manager responsible for the construction of this new out-of-the-ground 4-story 30,000 SF building. Named the Manufacturers & Builders Building (“M&B”), the all-glass four story structure is located in the heart of Manhattan’s “Decorator and Design” district.

The project consisted of all necessary core and shell elements and systems including a custom curtain wall and storefront on both the Third Avenue and 57th Street elevations, as well as a 4th floor terrace space. The building’s curtain wall system is energy efficient and allows for expansive views of the city.

To maximize that open-air effect, the exterior was designed so that the space between the ground-floor concrete to the glass walls is only eight inches.
