MetroWall, A Leader In Premium Interior Glass Walls, Announces NYC Showroom

CONGERS, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MetroWall, a trusted partner to the Design & Build Construction communities since 2007, recently announced the planned opening of a new showroom this summer at 10 Grand Central. As a leader in premium glass wall interiors, the showroom will allow MetroWall to further their goal to elevate the human experience by helping create highly functional and inspiring commercial environments.

“MetroWall has always been motivated to set the standard for client experience, project schedules and product quality,” said Jared Scott, General Manager at MetroWall. “With local roots in Congers, NY, securing a space in the heart of the city where we can connect with customers improves their experience by providing an easily accessible hub where they can see the tangible benefits of our products. It also allows us to play a small part in the continued resurgence of NYC.”

“The space was very appealing for their showroom and for the architect and builder clients that visit them,” said tenant broker Jonathan Anapol of Prime Manhattan Realty.

“Originally designed by Ely Jacques Kahn in 1931 and steps from Grand Central Terminal, 10 Grand Central has recently been reimagined through a top-to-bottom hospitality-infused repositioning strategy designed to meet the needs of the modern workplace,” said Craig Deitelzweig, President & CEO, Marx Realty. “MetroWall is the perfect addition to an already exciting tenant roster and its mission to help revitalize interior spaces aligns perfectly with the building’s strategy and with what many landlords and tenants are trying to accomplish in order to make their properties and spaces more attractive.”

Leverage MetroWall’s Expertise to Simplify Test Fits

Test fits (or preliminary space plans) are a foundational component of design and build projects. Not only do test fits help tenants determine if a commercial space is the right fit for their needs and their budget, but they also give architect and design teams the opportunity to think deeply about materials and systems they’ll want to use and how to implement them.  

 In our experience, test fits also enable our architect and design clients to identify unique challenges in a space. Discovering and learning about these problems early on gives them time to find solutions that meet the tenant’s expectations and their design needs. This ensures suitable space and glass wall systems are chosen and minimize unforeseen challenges that could drive up costs or extend the timeline of a project.

As a result, once an architect or designer decides they want to use MetroWall’s glass wall systems in their project, we recommend getting our team of experts involved in the design process as soon as possible. Being involved during the test fit stage helps us better understand the design intent, the desired aesthetics, and the functionality required from the glass wall interiors.  

Once MetroWall is spec’d, our architectural representatives offer valuable insight on our glass wall systems, guidance based on previous experience, and coordinate with our team to find solutions tailored to the project. A few topics we frequently discuss with our architect and design clients during the test fit stage include: 

  • Acoustic and STC ratings 
  • Sustainability 
  • Door types and function 
  • Custom components (if required) 
  • Security needs 
  • Review of other project components (e.g., flooring, ceilings, etc.) 

Of course, there is plenty more to talk about, but in our experience every project is different and comes with its own unique challenges. In addition to offering guidance and collaborating with A&D teams to find solutions, we provide quick turnaround budgets to manage tenant expectations and help A&D teams maintain their design intent. 

A good example of this can be seen in the project we collaborated on with HLW International at the International Flavors & Fragrance Inc. IFF wanted glass wall interiors that would deliver a bold and modern aesthetic. But they also had specific olfactory requirements for their testing environments that needed to be met. Our team worked with the HLW designers to create airtight glass booths by utilizing single-glazed versions of our DG system with framed doors, drop seals, and custom Bespoke sniffing windows mounted in the doors.

Working closely with the A&D team early on not only enabled us to come up with an ideal solution, but also ensured that our project managers, production team, and installers were aware of the details of the job, making for a frictionless experience.
