On behalf of New York University Langone Medical Center (NYULMC), Turner provided construction management services for the Tisch Elevator Tower, which was constructed as part of NYULMC’s on-going capital redevelopment program. The 18-story freestanding and reinforced concrete structure, connects to Tisch Hospital’s 18-story bed tower, which houses a four-car elevator bank. The scope of work also included the expansion and renovation of the hospital’s main lobby, which included a new reception area, and visitor and patient amenities, such as meditation and consult rooms.
Located within the confines of NYUMLC’s active healthcare campus, Turner managed a myriad of site logistics. Work was carefully planned around the hospital’s on-going operations, to ensure patient, staff and visitor safety. To construct the Tisch Elevator, the team cut through an existing retaining wall and created a foundation that measures 15-feet in-depth. To ensure the structure’s integrity and offset potential lateral load from high cross-winds, the superstructure was seismically detailed and features structural steel special moment frames (SMF) and unique shear walls. To support the new elevator tower, extensive MEP upgrades were completed and a double-ended substation concrete vault was also built for a future transformer.
