Kitchen Exhaust Risers

This project began with a scope of work that added three kitchen exhaust shafts from the basement and first floor restaurants of the Grace building to the 19th Floor set back.

The design of this project by Moed de Armas & Shannon Architects was critical to include the existing exterior façade of the building that was built with a famous swooping base.  Through several critical projects meetings with various engineers from the scaffold, steel & mechanical vendors, the means and method were determined for all trades to have safe access to each working platform for their installation. Over the course of several months, with two separate working scaffold systems and several unforeseen obstacles, the project team was able to make the shafts operable for the building to activate to their food service tenants that were racing against our construction schedule. Once the exhaust ducts were tied-in to the base building systems, the final stages of the project began with a joint operation between the scaffold being dismantled and the exterior panels being installed.  Through close coordination and scheduling, the project team was able to close the exterior shaft and remove the scaffold simultaneously over the course of many weeks to reveal a structure that blends into the building façade system seamlessly.
