Transforming an icon

I am overseeing the transformation of this iconic landmark into a residential tower with a fine-tuned lighting design that ensures the preservation of the iconic presence of the building in the New York City skyline.

The project had been in the drawing board at Schwinghammer Lighting for a few years before my arrival. I have managed the project from the end of the CD phase through its current state of construction. My responsibilities involve every aspect of the project, including resolving construction site issues, coordination with other parties, executing on-site mock-ups for exterior lighting, value engineering, budgeting, development of lighting construction details, among others.
