100 Park Avenue Gets a Facelift Courtesy of Aluminum

The first retrofit building of New York has been built with aluminum composite materials. It has won the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification for its eco credentials. This amazing skyscraper has also used glass along with steel for its framework to give it a modern and futuristic perspective. The main challenge in its architecture was to reduce the load on the brick foundation. Thus, ACM panel was used to create a suspended system, which was only possible due to the panel’s light weight. The resultant building now features 36 story and occupies a surface area of 955,000 square foot with high rising lobbies and double the size of the original store fronts. There are 14 green roofs that will work towards recycling water by virtue of the low maintenance Xero Flor mat system.
