Construction of a new, transparent, single-story glass pavilion, which serves as the base-building for a retail store with a standing seam roof. Before new construction could begin, an existing greenhouse on-site had to be removed, and involved excavation, piles, and utility connections. Completed within a high-profile site that attracts more than 18 million visitors annually requiring immense logistical planning for foot traffic and procurement. Due to the marketplace’s susceptibility to flooding, the team brought in a subcontractor who furnished and installed a flood panel at the main entrance of the structure, located below the flooding zone.
