AECOM Tishman has been pleased to serve Weill Cornell Medicine on numerous projects.
In two examples, we served as construction manager on the conversion of three existing floors at 2315 Broadway into an ambulatory care facility, including renovations to infrastructure and elevators, as well as the installation of a brand-new HVAC system for the converted space. The West Side Ambulatory Care Building consists of a walk-in clinic with multiple practices and specialties, including internal medicine, gynecology, pediatrics and endocrinology and an imaging facility on the fourth floor. The new facility occupies the top three floors of the existing 40,000-square-foot building, which also houses 10,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. These businesses remained operational during the construction phase. In order to mitigate any interruptions, the project team coordinated construction schedules with the businesses, which required some of the work to be done at night and on weekends. The project is compliant with NYS DOH Article 28.
We also served as construction manager for the 16,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fit-out of clinical space for the Sean Parker Institute of the Voice at 240 E. 59th Street. The specialized treatment and research center, at the forefront of laryngology, focuses on caring for patients with voice disorders, offering clinical trials and training for medical residents. The space also houses the Institute’s brain and spine practice, which provides customized care for patients dealing with a broad range of spinal conditions. Since the new facility is located in an existing building, with retail below and residential space above that had to remain operational at all times, the buildout required careful coordination by our team.
