Precision-Aire was thrilled and truly honored to be chosen as the HVAC installer at the newest Apple store in New York City, located inside the Oculus structure at the World Trade center. Besides being part of such a monumental and sentimental site for NYC, we were also excited to add to our growing list of completed LEED-certified HVAC projects, Apple being the largest.
The Apple store is the only two-floor unit at the Oculus and is the single largest retailer at the newly opened mall and transportation hub, requiring miles of ductwork to be installed. Because of it’s large size, many of the building’s base systems ran through the unit’s space. Precision worked with building managers and Apple engineers to work around these systems with proper clearances and in some cases, relocate them.
Precision also worked closely with the electronics retailer to maintain the special interior architectural details that are uniquely “Apple”—namely their signature ceiling design—which required special diffusers and outlets.
