J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. HQ2: Lobby & 2nd Floor

Sciame is the Construction Manager responsible for the renovation of the lobby space and second floor located in the office building housing J.P. Morgan’s investment banking division.

The exterior portion of the lobby requires the installation of 100 concrete bollards and a new canopy, which includes a structural steel, miscellaneous steel, glass and stainless-steel cladding and will feature power, lighting and signage. The lobby renovation consists of the installation of 14 new security turnstiles, new light fixtures (in the POPS, elevator and escalator area) and a Barrisol stretched fabric throughout the ceiling of the lobby. The stretched fabric system will be fabricated in a frame with integral lighting, that calls for sprinkler and HVAC work to facilitate the installation.

Demolition and renovation are required for portions of the 2nd floor space, while keeping the entire building operational. The demolition includes the removal of existing partitions, ceilings, flooring, sheet metal, piping, electrical and sprinkler devices. In addition, the scope requires the installation of a new Starbucks and the renovation to an existing café, involving the relocation of MEP and new equipment, that features new kiosks and checkout counters. The 2nd floor will feature a newly furnished lounge space and corridor.
