New Museum of Contemporary Art
We have played a role in constructing some of the New York City metropolitan area’s most prestigious facilities. One example is the New Museum of Contemporary Art. The seven-story, 58,700-square-foot facility was named one of the architectural New Seven Wonders of the World by Conde Nast Traveler in 2008. The small footprint of the site and the unique architectural and structural design of the floor plans resulted in a hybrid of mechanical systems. The building’s heating plant utilizes gas-fired boilers, and the chilled water is generated from rooftop air-cooled chillers. Air handling units are located on various floors, and humidification control is a key element of the system.
