Mixed-Use Building, 108 Chambers Street Wins Metal Building and Roofing Award

NYC mixed use building, 108 Chambers Street won the 2019 Metal Building and Roofing Award in New Metal Walls by Metal Construction News!

McLaren engineered the attachment of the 10,000 square feet of metal panel for this 10-story mixed use building with a staggering number 7 shaped facade. Designed to match its surrounding NYC Tribeca neighborhood, the building was fabricated with aluminum wall panels and a Deco Bronze finish that mimics cast iron while producing a range of colors and appearances.

“This whole area of Tribeca is really rich with these cast iron facades,” Keith Sagliocca, associate at Woods Bagot in New York City says. “That’s just not a construction method that’s really used anymore, so we were trying to replicate that depth and that quality with contemporary materials. So that’s where we got the depth and the shingling, or the angling of the panels, that helps break down the facade into a rhythm that’s more relatable to the human scale. Rather than having a facade where everything is at the same depth across, breaking down of the facade into these angled modules helps make it a more relatable scale.”
