12,000 sq/ft amenities floor featuring Savant control of the lounge, theater, conference room, gym, wellness spa, smart kitchen, playroom, and outdoor zen garden.
When three client-specified technology features evolved into thirteen categories of systems, the construction management team struggled to understand the complex integration requirements and maintain a macro view of the end-user experience.
Techmenity designed and installed a fiber-optic and copper data network that spans the amenities floor, two lobbies, and two residential towers. We integrated building-wide surveillance, access control, WiFi, VoIP telephony, computers running Azure, and existing BMS. The converged network is monitored, maintained, and continually optimized by our
SBaaMS (Smart Building as a Managed Service.)
The updated amenity floor breathed new life into a high-profile Tribeca property, providing residents with a multi-use space that is responsive, functional, and beautiful. Through clear communication, we helped the stakeholders recognize the value of a converged network that integrates all systems, allows for non-invasive upgrades in the future, and positions the building as a smart, Future-Ready property.

This project was initiated by the Board of Managers in 2014. Techmenity began bidding in early 2018 with a vision statement and modified drawings. Project was won in October, 2018.
Once brought on as the Technology General Contractor, Techmenity worked with the architect, designer, and construction manager to finalize all drawings, elevations, and details of technology components.
Demolition began Spring, 2019. Techmenity participated in weekly site visits and collaborated with trades. Procore was used to manage the project.
Scheduled to be completed in March 2020, finishing was put on hold due to the COVID crisis. The space opened to residents Jan. 2021 at limited capacity.
