Hispanic Federation

This office space in the Financial District of New York City was built to serve as headquarters for the Hispanic Federation, an organization affiliated with the Tides Foundation. The completed project features perimeter executive offices, an open space administrative area, a reception area, a conference room and a pantry.

Unique is the conference room configuration, featuring a Modernfold moveable wall system that allows for division of the space into two separate meeting rooms, with blackout shades for A/V presentations.

Interior finishes include custom broadloom carpet and carpet tiles, drywall ceiling in the reception area and Armstrong Beveled-Tegular suspended ceilings in other areas, aluminum and glass walls by Raco, sycamore doors with custom finishes, compact and lay-in fluorescent and other lighting fixtures by National, Zumtobel and Kurtz Versen, and furniture systems by Geiger and Steelcase.  

The new MEP systems include perimeter circulating water heating units, electronic VAV dampers, circulation pumps, an air distribution and ductwork network, entirely new high and low voltage electrical panels and distribution system, and new sprinkler piping.  

Project complexities included coordinating the manufacture of the Modernfold systems with installation by an unaffiliated subcontractor. Additionally the team removed an outside hoist and enclosed delivery openings with new windows at the time of project completion.

This fit-out was part of a larger project for The Tides Foundation detailed here.
