MADGI Completes ‘Tech Loft’ Design for Traders

May 17, 2016 | News

Montroy Andersen DeMarco (MADGI) has completed the construction of Trammo’s 19,000 s/f world headquarters, located on the ninth floor of One Rockefeller Plaza.

Trammo is a global commodities merchandising, trading, and shipping company dealing in ammonia, energy products, liquefied petroleum gas, fertilizers, raw materials, and other chemicals. Trammo’s 2014 global annual revenue exceeded $12 billion. In 2014, it was the largest privately held company in the New York area, according to Crain’s New York Business magazine.

“We wanted a modern, clean office design with large, comfortable public spaces, an open reception area, and a commodities trading room,” said Edward G. Weiner, Trammo’s COO/CFO. “We wanted MADGI to reinforce our branding with strong, contemporary architecture and design elements.”

“The MADGI team helped Trammo with the search for the new space and held test fits that ensured Trammo’s 81 employees would fit into the space within the proposed program,” said MADGI Principal Steven Andersen.

The project team also included the general contractor J.T. Magen & Company, Inc.; the mechanical engineer MG Engineering, PC; the structural engineer Severud Associates Consulting Engineers; and the acoustical consultant Longman Lindsey.

Trammo leadership liked the “tech loft” aesthetic for which MADGI is known, so the space features exposed ceilings and structural elements, glazed meeting rooms and plenty of shared “social” spaces for employees. Fxtures and materials have high noise mitigation properties, such as Pyrok StarSilent acoustical treatment over exposed concrete ceiling surfaces, soundproofed doors in glazed meeting rooms, and glazed partitions with a high STC rating. Each private office has an Ecophon dropped acoustical cloud ceiling.
