The new Fulton Fish Market located in Hunts Point, NY is approximately 480,000 sq. ft of space. This project was initially designed by others and severely over budget. Upon redesign by Wexler Associates, approximately 1,800 piles and 8,000 cubic yards of concrete were saved. Also, significant savings in steel were realized. In addition, because the concrete floor is subjected to a massive use of forklifts and chemicals and it is used by customers and merchants, for foot traffic special considerations were given to durability and finishes. A special design mix was developed for this project. Construction was completed in early 2004.
