Structural Features

  • This project is the tenant fit-out for Microsoft offices within the north and south buildings at Atlantic Yards, which were also originally designed by U+C.
  • The interior renovation scope adds six unique monumental stairs throughout the buildings.  The existing structure was studied for the new stair openings.  Each monumental stair contours to a unique sculptural shape, utilizes a different combination of materials, and presented unique design challenges.
  • Throughout the building, new assembly areas were designated which increased the original design’s live loading per code.  U+C carefully reviewed these areas and, where additional structural strengthening was required, provided fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) recommendations to reinforce existing concrete framing with minimal impact to the tenants.
  • New cores required extensive coordination with the existing structure’s two-way post-tensioned banded-banded floor plate design as to not damage existing post-tensioned tendons.  All consultants worked together to provide field review, approval, and close supervision during installation for the new cores.
