L&K Partners collaborated with an anonymous research institute to build-out their new headquarters. The project consisted of the interior demolition and build-out of eight office floors, one auditorium floor with full audio-visual, acoustical walls, raised seating, a cafeteria and dining floor, a board room floor with private 2-floor elevator and new roof terrace, and a private lobby and elevators for the client. Notable features include a decorated internal staircase and a new glass egress staircase spanning the entire building. New infrastructure includes cooling towers, boilers, HVAC system, generators, gas and plumbing risers, water tanks for a new fire sprinkler system, new data center with UPS, electrical switch gear, and a new fire alarm system.
