UJA Federation of NY Headquarters - 130 East 59th Street

Sciame was the Construction Manager responsible for a complete phase gut rehabilitation to this midtown office building, while the building remained partially occupied by the owner tenant. Renovations to 130 East 59th Street included replacing the existing glazed brick facade with a new curtain wall-system and making repairs to the roofs and terraces. Work on major systems included replacing the air-conditioning, heating, and electrical systems, and upgrading the elevators. In addition, the office spaces were renovated including the 7th floor conference center.

The lobby was enlarged and reconfigured to improve access and security. To increase the amount of retail space in the building, conference and meeting facilities were moved from the second floor to the seventh floor.
