Location 225 Varick St, New York, NY
Project Size 84,000 SF
JRM Construction Management completed the 84,000 SF commercial build-out for the new Squarespace headquarters. The New York-based web publishing company’s five-month reconstruction project consisted of the ground floor, 10th, 11th and 12th floors, plus a rooftop deck and bar at 225 Varick Street. JRM successfully constructed the three-floor build-out with multiple roof penetrations, three new stair installations and a glass-enclosed roof bulkhead. To ensure proper fit and finish, JRM implemented closely detailed planning and installation of curved floor openings, curved glass features and stainless steel installations. They also worked with the mechanical, electrical and structural trades to implement these designs.
JRM created an exciting office environment that reflects the energy of the Squarespace team. Well-appointed fixtures such as an open tread staircase with poured-in platform, dyed and polished concrete floors and pre-cast concrete work stations mounted on steel trellis supports add drama to the sleek space. Additional features include curved glass conference rooms, a skylight and large interior planters housing trees that rise through the center atrium to the 11th floor. The space is furnished with a pureform perforated metal ceiling, black wood slat walls and ceilings, custom-fabricated Corian linear drain sinks and a Ketra lighting system with changeable LED lighting throughout.
