Work Underway on Grand Central Station Annex Renovation
Wok is currently underway on the $21 million Grand Central Station renovations which includes a new employee facility and public tennis courts in the station’s annex as a result of the Metro-North’s compliance with federal laws that require quarters for railroad conductors.
F.J. Sciame Construction Company of New York is providing architectural/engineering design and construction services on this design-build project as part of a single contract with the project owner. Ziggurat Systems of Lynbrook, New York is providing 3D modeling and coordination services in order to reduce impacts to the construction process by identifying any and all design clashes in the model throughout the early design phases.
Upon completion, the annex in Grand Central Station which was formerly the home of CBS studios from 1939 to 1964 and then leased by Donald Trump as a location for storing architectural models and playing tennis, will include large, historic windows on the 3rd floor.
Construction on the renovations began in the middle of December 2009 and are scheduled to be completed by June 2011.
