Fireproofing - Project Profiles:
Condé Nast Building
Nast Building @ Four Times Square
: Fox & Fowle Architects, P.C.
: New York, NY
This 48-story building has attracted national
attention because of its focus on sustainable design practices and environmental
responsibility. Developed by the Durst Organization, Inc., the building
incorporates sustainable building practices with a commitment to supplying
construction materials that exhibit durability, appropriateness, performance
and attention to occupational health and safety during the manufacturing
The architects selected construction materials
with a preference for those that contained the maximum percentage of recycled
content and low-to-no VOC's while avoiding materials that might be harmful
to workers' health or the environment.
Monokote® MK-6® met or exceeded the
environmental performance guidelines for the Condé Nast Building.
Excellent in-place performance characteristics, combined with high recycled
content, made Monokote® the fireproofing product of choice.
