Lucy’s Whey Upper East Side

The artisan cheese purveyors at Lucy’s Whey opened their newest location on the Upper East Side at 1417 Lexington Ave. As with their other locations, Lucy’s Whey offers a wide selection of American-made farmstead cheeses, cured meats and all the necessary condiments needed to create the perfect platter for your next party or family gathering. The Upper East Side location is also the home of their first ever restaurant, pairing their signature dishes with a wide and unique selection of wines and beer. EP Engineering provided MEP design services for the shop’s renovation.

Engineering challenges

  • Limited space for equipment and ductwork within ceilings and closets.
  • No roof space available for outdoor condensing unit.

Engineering outcomes

  • A Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system was utilized with a combination of ductless wall mounted and ducted units. Ductwork was concealed in soffits to fit within the existing architecture.
  • Since not roof or rear yard space was available, the condensing unit was mounted on the rear facade of the building. This also kept the length of refrigerant piping to a minimum, which kept costs down.
