A.P.C. is a worldwide apparel boutique retailer producing “Hip, High-end Men’s and Women’s Fashions”. EP Engineering joined forces with both Andrea Mason Architect and Laurent Deroo Architecte for the renovation of the existing APC Store located at 131 Mercer Street. The scope of work included a new floor and lighting plans for the ground and cellar levels, replacement of the existing packaged A/C unit, and re-design of the existing building electrical service with the area of work totaling approximately 6,500 square feet.
- Relocation of residential riser passing through store with minimal interruption to tenants.
- Supplying air to 1st floor sales area, while keeping ceiling on first floor clear of ductwork and air supply grilles.
- Close coordination of mechanical and architectural allowed for floor registers to supply air conditioning to the first floor while maintaining a discrete appearance. Minimal ductwork was run at the ceiling level of the first floor.
- Given that the store had to remain operational during the renovations, EP Engineering ensured “all hands on deck” to maintain a short design schedule to meet client expectations.
