MBP provided on-site support by supplementing the team with a full-time MEP project manager. MBP’s role expanded from a short-term assignment to a 22-month role as a trusted advisor to the owner. MBP’s team helped manage and coordinate the MEP trades from the rough-in stage through occupancy, including coordinating and placing the 350-kw emergency generator on the building’s roof. In addition to commissioning the MEP systems in preparation for occupancy, MBP also managed the process of passing all required FDNY inspections for the fire alarm system. MBP oversaw the installation of the  water source heat pumps, cooling towers, gas fired boilers, gas fired hot water heaters, wet and dry sprinkler systems, gas fired emergency generator and emergency power systems, domestic water systems, electrical distribution equipment, low voltage telecom, cable tv, fiber optic backbone, security systems, and the hydraulic car elevators. This project involved a 20-story residential building on the upper east side of Manhattan. The building has 56 luxury apartments, a dedicated childcare facility, fitness center, and a parking facility with two hydraulic car elevators serving four levels. The total square footage of the building was 155,764 square feet. The reinforced concrete structure has a glass curtainwall with operable windows.
