- HUDSON YARDS -
— HUDSON YARDS —
Hudson Yards is New York’s newest neighborhood and cultural center of Manhattan’s New West Side. Owned by Related and Oxford Properties, Hudson Yards boasts new towers anchoring the west side, along with a Culture Shed that houses a performance venue for patrons to enjoy, relax, and hear their favorite artists perform.
Adjacent to the High Line, the neighborhood is bustling with activity with some of New York’s famous restaurants, bars, inviting art galleries, and international fashion and design.
Hudson Yards is adding to the tradition of Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen by propelling it from its industrious past towards a future that will help redefine Manhattan.
Agon has its hands on the infrastructure and every building that comprise Hudson Yards. In its infancy, Agon was brought in to help Tutor Perini, Tishman, and Gilbane with complicated areas of engineering that needed to be resolved in order for the West Side Yard to function and the growth of the towers above to thrive. Agon not only gained the trust of those general contractors, but the owners and several sub-contractors as well. In doing so, Agon also sprouted and grew into the BIM consultants that have helped mold the ever-changing New York skyline.

World Trade Center
- WORLD TRADE CENTER -
― WORLD TRADE CENTER ―
The World Trade Center reconstruction project was perhaps America’s most visible project for over a decade.
Following the Sept. 11th attack on the towers, Silverstein Properties and The Port Authority held a worldwide competition for design efforts of the new buildings to replace the iconic towers that fell.
The site now boasts the massive Freedom Tower, two large memorial fountains, the Oculus transportation hub, and two new additional towers (Tower 2 TBD) in its wake.
The new site now re-anchors Manhattan’s financial district with one of Manhattan’s tallest buildings and sculptural train hub.
The catalyst for Agon’s creation was forged with The World Trade Center Project.
It is with The World Trade Center project where the owners of Agon created a repour of integrity and expertise.
After Agon’s creation, the Port Authority requested Agon to help finish the coordination effort of the retail spaces which occupy the Oculus.
Agon managed the coordination effort in conjunction with TTJV to help Wakefield take over the retail spaces to allow the tenants to house their shops.
Laguardia Airport | LGA |
- LAGUARDIA AIRPORT -
— LAGUARDIA AIRPORT —
The New LaGuardia Airport is under major renovation and reconstruction for all terminals.
LaGuardia has nearly 22 million passengers cross its gates throughout the year and soon each one will be greeted with the country’s newest and most technologically advanced airport in the world.
The New LaGuardia looks to help passengers navigate quickly and safely to and from New York City. With its sister airport JFK seeking renovation and reconstruction shortly, visitors of New York City will be delighted to be welcomed by the beautiful new terminals that needed much attention in years past.
Agon is involved with power distribution and branch, telecom backbone, lighting, and low voltage systems across 6 separate areas of LaGuardia’s renovation.
Given that LaGuardia is still a fully functional airport during it’s reconstruction, Agon used it’s ability to coordinate through complicated phasing to help LaGuardia stay on track to opening it’s new terminals one by one.
- ONE VANDERBILT -
― ONE VANDERBILT ―
One Vanderbilt is the tallest office tower in New York City anchored on the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue in Midtown Manhattan designed by KPF.
One Vanderbilt dwarf’s its neighboring Chrysler Building and Empire State Building by over 400ft. Making it the new big guy of Midtown. Owners of the Tower, SL Green, opted for Manhattan’s newest and most advantageous observation deck where visitors will be greeted with mirrored floor to ceiling double floor area to soak in the sun and city lights.
Agon aided in the pre-coordination effort of the tower with Tishman Construction.
Here Agon was able to implement new building codes that were changed due to Hurricane Sandy. Agon helped Tishman and JBB evolve the design of the electrical system [Medium Voltage ductbanks, and backbone electric] to accommodate the new requirements and save money of future change orders.
Thereafter, Agon was brought in again to help coordinate low voltage systems for the Summit Observation Deck.
- COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY -
— COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY —
Columbia University is a cornerstone of Ivy League institutions that has recently expanded its world-famous campus throughout the Upper West Side and Harlem.
With designs brought in from the likes of Renzo Piano and Diller + Scofidio, the future Columbia University scholars are in for an architectural treat as they absorb the knowledge that will push forward the future of science, mathematics, medicine, and architecture.
Agon’s first project was to coordinate the electrical backbone system of the Diller + Scofidio designed Roy & Diana Vagelos Education Center.
A uniquely designed building that needed unique solutions for making sure the power stayed on and the building glowed in its Harlem nights.
Agon was also brought in to help coordinate the electrical and low voltage systems of a few Renzo Piano designed buildings in Manhattanville. Truly proud to call these projects Agon’s first.
