TRITEC Building Company, as construction manager, built this ground-up development of a two-story structure with a full basement that is partially exposed. UFCW Local 1500 new office building is located at 425 Merrick Avenue on a two-acre site in Westbury, Long Island, New York. The building exterior is designed with a modern look, comprised of dryvit and brick, and features a glass curtain wall. Significant grade changes forced UFCW to add an engineered retaining wall that runs the north side of the buildings.
The building's interior meets the needs of the owner, including conference rooms, large training rooms with partitions, and bullpen space. When you enter the building, you walk into a large two-story atrium flanked by mahogany wood panels that add an elegant touch to the glass and ceramic tiles that make up the rest of the space.
The building had a nine-month construction schedule that was completed on time within the owner's budget.
