Engineers expanding to 39,000 s/f at 100 b'way.
The firm opened its first U.S. office of FTL-Happold in New York in 1992 to produce designs for lightweight fabric structures. In the late 1990s increasing demand to provide structural and MEP solutions for a wider range of building types and design challenges resulted in the establishment of Buro Happold in New York. Buro Happold moved to 100 Broadway in January 2006, when it leased the top two floors of the building, 23 and 24. In less than two years the firm has grown its business in the United States to such a degree that it needed an additional floor, explained Allyson Bowen, Studley assistant director, who along with executive managing director Howard Nottingham represented the tenant.
Some of the firm's most notable projects in the U.S. include: the Kogod Courtyard at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery and the United States Institute of Peace both in Washington, DC; and the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center at Rennselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, New York.
In 2006, Buro Happold moved from 105 Chambers Street to 100 Broadway. According to Bowen, the firm wanted to stay Downtown.The landlord was represented by Ed Goldman and Scott Slopes of CB Richard Ellis.
