Liberty Island Retail Pavilion

Sciame was the Construction Manager responsible for the construction of the 6,700 SF retail pavilion. The pavilion houses the gift concession as well as public toilets for the 2 ½ million plus visitors who ferry to the Statue of Liberty each year. Built to Platinum LEED standards, the retail pavilion incorporates many energy saving and sustainability related features including a 1,500 foot deep geothermal well, LED lighting, waterless urinals, a generator which burns excess cooking oil from the food concession, rainwater storage/re-use.

The new Retail Pavilion is built of a steel frame, clad in Cor-Ten, of bolted columns and beams on a 33’ x 33’ grid, with an intermediate column grid every 16’-6” around the building perimeter. Columns rest on poured in place concrete footings, bolted together through steel plates. Exterior footings are four feet in depth; interior footings extend down two feet six inches. This methodology minimizes any impact to the historical fabric of this part of the island should the Pavilion building ever be removed.
