UAG is providing construction management services for the build out of the Copenhagen-based firm Bjarke Ingels Group’s new U.S. office. Currently located in Manhattan, the new space in Dumbo’s Tech Triangle will more than double its square footage. As BIG’s portfolio expands in New York City with the completion of the VIA 57 West project, the additional room is needed to accommodate the firm’s growing staff, which includes executives, architects, researchers, engineers and more.
The overall aesthetic is light and open with clean lines accentuated by skylights, allowing the influx of natural lighting. The space will include large open workstations, casual lounge areas, canteen and pantries and glass-enclosed meeting rooms. A built-in materials library is located adjacent to the workstations for easy reference. The fit-out will also feature an architectural model shop, photo studio and gallery.
