Staples Superstore NYC

Continuing its relationship with office supply chain retailer Staples, Inc., Mc Gowan served as General Contractor for the new Staples store in Jackson Heights, New York.  

The million-dollar project encompassed a complete fit-out of an 18,000 square foot space, including a 12,000 sq ft sales floor and an 8,000 sq ft storage area in the basement. The first floor houses the entrance, check-out counter, sales floor, print and copy shop, receiving area/loading dock, security booth, two restrooms and the employee lounge. Prior to build-out, Mc Gowan performed a selective demolition of the space.

Finishes include carpet tile and ceramic tile flooring, painted walls, slatwall panels, ninety suspended luminescent light fixtures and painted Q-Deck ceilings. The laborers removed parts of the pre-existing storefront, replaced it with new windows and installed a new chain-operated gate door. 

Mc Gowan coordinated installation of the shelving and provided electrical connections for exposition cases. In the basement, the crew constructed a new electrical and telecommunications closet as well as refinished the concrete floor with an epoxy sealant.

The project involved upgrades and relocations of the MEP systems, construction of a new masonry elevator shaft and installation of a new freight elevator. To deliver the project on a challenging nine week deadline, the Mc Gowan team extended work scheduling to include overtime and weekends.
