This confidential client, a Fortune 500 Pharmaceutical company, asked Cyma Builders to manage the construction of a new state of the art cafeteria including full food prep, upscale service areas, café style seating for 200 people and adjacent lunch/work conference rooms at their Bridgewater, NJ headquarters.
The project began with demolition and environmental remediation of what was a former facility sterilization area. Cyma installed new electrical and mechanical infrastructure including underslab plumbing for waste and drain piping, new exhaust systems to support the new grill lines and ovens and Ansul systems to accompany the new hood/exhaust packages.
New men’s and women’s bathrooms were included in the project, as was an exterior patio which required new exterior and secondary entrances into the main building. Interior finishes were all high level with stainless steel countertops, Zolatone finish at soffits, quarry tile floors, architectural grade lighting package and numerous architectural details such as skylights and center island displays.
For Logan Circle Partners, a financial investment firm with offices in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Cyma completed an ultra high-end total renovation for their new 15th floor Philadelphia office. The project had a compressed timeline of sixteen weeks and at the same time required procurement of numerous long lead finishes. The project included a new stone floor lobby/reception area, cafeteria, sophisticated NYSE trading floor level workroom and glass walled executive offices.
Cyma has been a “go to” contractor for Philadelphia based Comcast Corporation at numerous locations including their 1500 Market Street location. We’ve renovated entire floors including office, lobby and core spaces and we’ve also performed various pre-construction services including conceptual estimating, project planning and operation and maintenance. Comcast’s continuous restack of office spaces often requires careful coordination with adjacent occupied spaces and fast-track construction execution.
Cyma has been recognized by Comcast for not only completing projects on time, but also because of the strict cost controls and high quality standards we have in place.
Cyma was initially hired to renovate the existing 15 story high rise residential apartment building, which included new floor plan layout for 7 units per floor, upgrades to the HVAC and electrical panels for each unit and new kitchens/bathrooms, which would convert the former apartments into high end extended stay suites. Once underway, the Owner decided to shift gears and completely re-build the interiors including new mechanical and electrical infrastructure upgrades with increased capacities, new plumbing risers and domestic hot water piping systems, fire alarm system, emergency generator, building code corrections and the complete demolition and renovation to the building entrance, including Historical Commission recommendations, new sidewalks, sidewalk lighting and exterior building lighting upgrades.
