Our confidential client is leasing 500,000 SF of the Lord and Taylor 5th Ave location and renovating the building. Synergi has collaborated with WRNS through the design assist process to design 14 turnkey feature stairs within the predetermined GMP starting the collaboration at the design development stage. The stairs include a mixture of finishes including concrete treads, millwork cladding and integral lighting all of which Synergi incorporated. Synergi was able to make significant cost savings through the design assist process through addressing the logistical constraints and designing the stair modules around this.
