Working with the New York State Office of General Services (NYSOGS), McLaren Engineering Group provided construction phase code compliance review, inspection, and certification services for building renovations and building systems upgrades at the New York State Insurance Fund (NYSIF) Headquarters. Located at 199 Church Street in NYC’s TriBeCa neighborhood, this Class B government building provides 314,784 square feet of office space to one of the largest providers of workers’ compensation insurance in New York.
This was a relatively complex renovation, which included an upgrade of the NY State Police areas at the lower levels of the building, overhauling the building’s MEP systems, upgrade of the fire protection systems, the addition of gas-powered emergency generators, the addition of rooftop equipment and dunnage, and the seismic reinforcement/retrofit of the building’s elevator core walls.
McLaren was involved throughout the construction phase of the project and ensured that the contractor maintained proper code documentation on-site at all times. Additionally, we resolved outstanding construction code deficiencies during weekly meetings with the Owner and Contractor. We were able to complete the construction phase code compliance review services at approximately $50,000 under budget.
