project at a glance

The14-story, 580,000 square foot fit-out for the New York City Human Resources Administration’s headquarters at 4 World Trade Center occupies floors 30 through 43 of the 72-story tower and features more than 200 meeting rooms, a 45-seat public assembly space, an interconnecting staircase, and extended MEP systems.

To maximize natural light, and to complement the building’s curtain wall, the GKV-designed headquarters features full-height glass office fronts. One of the project’s most distinct features is the asymmetrical terrazzo tile flooring, designed specifically to accent the molded plaster walls in each of the 14 elevator lobbies.

To maintain the integrity of the project’s schedule, construction followed a top-down sequence, starting with an executive staircase that connects floors 42 and 43. Additionally, to overcome site constraints, such as the building's one loading dock, and security checkpoints in the vicinity, Turner’s project team carefully sequenced all deliveries to guarantee optimal field performance and trade coordination and was able to meet a fast-track schedule.
