They’re all being worked on by Israel Berger & Associates, whose forte is curtain walls and building envelopes. Walk around Manhattan, and you’re likely to see more of IBA’s work than you realize—buildings like Hearst Tower, 7 World Trade Center, 100 Park Avenue, and Trump SoHo are only a few. President Israel Berger(center, unintentionally coordinating with senior principals Marc Weissbach and William Logan) tells us that fitting the right skin needs to serve architectural, structural, energy efficiency, durability, and maintainability needs.
MGM CityCenter in Las Vegas
Silverstein Properties
IBA’s two decades of work spans the globe—from the upcoming Towers One, Two, Three and Four at the World Trade Center site to MGM CityCenter in Las Vegas and noted completed projects Canary Wharf in England to Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. They have projects all over the US, including the Pacific Design Center Red Building in LA, and others in Boston, DC, Minnesota, and Atlanta. Currently, the firm is seeking challenges in the institutional and government realms. Follow their lead—your life may depend on it: Hospitals and healthcare facilities are affected by demand on the building skin, which they say can be a contributing factor to wellness.

IBA principals Walter Martinez, Alexander Argento, Stanford Chan, and Abraham Spierer. There has always been a focus on sustainability—they're working on a federal office building in Newark with the goal of reducing energy by 50%, and eight of its 60 employees are LEED-APs, Israel says. Owners also need to be prepared for Local Law 11; IBA has been working with them to assess façade conditions and identify anomalies which may affect inspections.
