Originally the Kodak building, this four-pod structure required innovative processes for the remodel. During the renovation, the center pod was removed and replaced with a 57 foot tall circulation tower that connected the three remaining pods with an elevator and winding staircase. Because the site was in the core of the remaining facility, equipment access was very limited. FP innovatively used a 500 ton hydraulic crane to remove exterior panels and utilized a 54 foot telescoping forklift to install the tower’s exterior curtain wall and new elevator.
A 500-ton hydraulic crane was placed 250 feet away to remove the exterior panels and a 54 foot telescoping forklift was used to install the tower’s exterior curtain wall.
