390 Madison Avenue Wins Platinum Award from ACEC New York

The renovation project in Manhattan was honored for its engineering excellence with the Platinum Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of New York.

390 Madison Avenue is a modern office transformation in Midtown, that surgically remakes an outmoded building to create double-height interior spaces, a column-free perimeter, and an exterior terrace overlooking three different streets. A new lateral system reinforces the building’s structure and adds an architectural character to the dramatic update. The transformation earned LEED Gold certification through updating the building’s mechanical, plumbing, and electrical equipment.

This year’s award recipients, were chosen by a panel of industry experts identifying New York’s premier projects. The 54th annual Engineering Excellence Awards New York will celebrate the winners in a gala on June 5th, 2021 marks ACEC New York’s 100th anniversary.

The multi-award winning 390 Madison Avenue was most recently honored with an American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum – one of three KPF projects to be recognized.
