The John A. Paulson Center at 181 Mercer on New York University’s campus opened Jan. 23, welcoming students and faculty at the multi-use building that includes 58 classrooms, theatres, athletic facilities, dining, communal spaces and much more at the 735,000 sq. ft. complex designed by KieranTimerlake and Davis Brody Bond.
Lerch Bates was contracted to provide Façade Access and Fall Protection consulting services for the building. Any system proposed for building maintenance must meet certain general and specific criteria as set forth by the Lerch Bates Façade Access Consulting Group and the design team.
The designed/supplied façade access system for the NYU Paulson Building includes elongated height davit system, elongated reach davit system, portable davit system, recessed monorail tracks, fall protection tie-back anchors, and aerial work platform locations. A methodical platform transfer method was included to depict how the swingstage could be transported to every service drop. 3D diagrams were produced to provide clarity of the various equipment types for each specific façade location.
