Aurora Contractors was honored to be awarded a second project by Macerich. This contract was for the renovation of the vacated Sears building at the Kings Plaza mall in Brooklyn, NY. This project consisted of a complete gut and renovation of a four-story concrete building anchored to the existing mall. Aurora was responsible for the demolition of the exterior façade, the 360,000 SF interiors, construction of the Flashbush Ave façade, as well as 12 new escalators, 12 elevators, new interiors, a complete roof replacement, and utility and fire alarm upgrades for all four floors. Aurora also had to perform extensive coordination for all major tenant utilities, roof-top equipment, vertical transportation, duct shafts, and fire alarm integration.
The mall is located directly in front of the MTA Flatbush Ave bus stop, and Aurora had to operate around the MTA bus schedule (a major hub for the Brooklyn Bus line) which added difficulty to the project. To accommodate this, extensive planning had to be performed daily with the mall’s operations and as well as the MTA to ensure all parties were aware of Aurora’s schedule and daily operations. Due to the numerous redesigns and changes that occurred on this project, Aurora implemented an accelerated schedule, working in shifts, to complete the work and still meet the milestone dates. The project commenced in December of 2017, and was completed in June of 2018.
