Bergdorf Goodman Building
5th Avenue at 58th Street, New York, NY 10019
The Bergdorf Goodman Building was constructed in 1928 on Fifth Avenue between 57th and 58th Street. The mansard style Art Deco building has undergone numerous adjustments to be on the leading edge of the retail fashion industry. These adjustments created a patchwork, multi-level roof that has challenged building personnel continuously.
The replacement of the roof integrated a number of cause and effect decisions to other building components and systems that are located on the roof. These included HVAC and mechanical equipment, obsolete windows, plumbing modifications along with needed repairs to masonry parapet and rise walls. Extreme coordination and strategic thinking were required to plan a project that could be successfully implemented within budget, complying with New York Codes, minimizing impact to store operations yet providing a realistic schedule and design procedure. for the contractor.
Conley Group’s design called for removal of existing roofs and replacement with either modified bitumen or single ply depending on roof area usage; repair of mansard roof tiles; repairs to masonry on parapet and rise walls, demolition of obsolete windows and over‑cladding and various drain repairs and replacements.
Under Budget and On Time
Conley Group proactively coordinated with the various trades to maintain a productive work schedule and maintenance of a quality installation. The project was completed under budget and on time and is considered a rousing success based on the complexity of work and challenging location.
