GMS was retained to provide consulting services related to the waterproofing of the Plaza of this prestigious Midtown Manhattan office building during the renovation of the building’s public spaces.  Integration of the waterproofing details at the base of the “Apple Cube” on the plaza provided some challenging design constraints as did the underwater lighting in the fountain pools.  Design and construction phase inspection services, including observation of the flood testing of the membrane, were included in GMS’s scope of work.
