Ziggurat Retained by Extell Development to Support Design & Construction

Extell Development retained Ziggurat to provide 3D MEP coordination for its residential development at 70 Charlton Street in Hudson Square, with the project adopting a two-tower configuration. The development consists of two 21-story buildings. The larger building will face Charlton Street and house 72 units, with a smaller 44-unit building facing Vandam Street. The project, designed by architects Beyer Blinder Belle, is slated for completion in 2016.

Initially Ziggurat worked closely with the Architects and Engineers to convert the 2D plans to 3D models and run clash detection so critical areas can be checked for design clashes and maintain required ceilings’ heights. This will enable the team to start construction and shop drawings phase with clash free design. Moving forward, Ziggurat works closely with the GC and Sub-contractors to perform 3D clash detection analysis during shop drawings coordination so any clashes created during the shop drawings phase will be resolved during MEP coordination before they get to the field.

Ziggurat has been working with Extell on multiple projects over the years.
