JRM Construction Management completed a flexible, modern space for dynamic events at Brookfield Place for Convene. The new space’s design reflects the organization’s collaborative work environments and lends the ability to create innovative events. The JRM and Convene teams worked closely to implement an expedited schedule in order to transform the former Saks Fifth Avenue space in a short, 16-week period. This close collaboration helped the seamless completion of three separate areas that required TCO sign-offs.
JRM also installed a full catering kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, including a precipitator, black iron duct, a large grease interceptor, Ansels systems and gas, as well as removed four large escalators to accommodate six event spaces. The multi-floor location features two large event spaces with connecting gallery spaces, four hubs designed for smaller gatherings, a curved feature stair with Terrazzo treads along with a Full For Five retail coffee shop and café.
