125 Broad Street, also known as 2 New York Plaza, is a 40-story, 504-foot office tower in Lower Manhattan on the corner of South Street and Broad Street. Being located on the East River, it is susceptible to strong wind-driven rains making the building envelope crucial to its integrity and longevity.
Western was hired by Cushman & Wakefield to complete a full façade sealant replacement. Western was responsible for removing and replacing approximately 250,000 LF (over 47 miles) of exterior sealant.
In addition to sealant replacement, the project scope also included glass replacement, mullion replacement, aluminum panel repair, and mullion track repair.
This project was completed over two phases while working through the pandemic in 2022. Despite having to navigate through several obstacles, Western was able to complete the project on time.
