DGC Contracting Completes sweetgreen in New York City’s World Trade Center

Mt Vernon, NY – January 5, 2022 – DGC Contracting (DGC), a leading retail and commercial general contractor in the Tri-state area, takes project work to the next level with the completion of sweetgreen’s flagship store at the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York City. The 2,600-square-foot space boasts beautifully crafted interior millwork that mimics the Oculus, which is located adjacent to the restaurant.

Wrapping up the project in just six months, this is the sixth sweetgreen store that DGC has completed for the company – other locations they have completed include Grand Central Station, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, 1740 Broadway, Eastchester NY, and Greenwich CT.

Working with an empty preconstruction building, DGC was responsible for all interior work consisting of both structural and design work. The showcase of the interior fit-outwas theplacement and hanging of all interior custom millwork created to mimic the Oculus building, the focal point of the store, which is featured on the walls for displays and continues up onto the ceiling. The store’s vibe is a modern industrial chic that’s bright and airy – and features pick-up stations to accommodate its growing digital-order base.

Additionally, the DGC team installed all wall finishes featuring a variety of decorative styles, such as ceramic tile, stainless wall panels and ADREX stucco, along with an assortment of floor finishes in epoxy, polished concrete and ceramic tile. Additional project installations included custom lighting fixtures, stainless kitchen equipment, digital menu boards and online pickup stations. On the structural side, they poured concrete topping slabs and concrete stairs.

“We’re extremely proud of the exceptional, high-quality work our team has delivered – providing sweetgreen with exactly what they wanted for this particular store, with a timeline that fit right within their IPO launch,” said Gerry Ryan, CEO & President, DGC Contracting. “To be involved in a project such as a flagship store speaks volumes about the work we produce and the timeliness in which we make things happen. Service excellence is what DGC is all about and we continue to deliver on that promise.”

“The project went flawlessly, especially since the World Trade Center logistics are difficult, due to three entities controlling the space and the tight security requirements for workers and deliveries,” said Ryan. “We’re prepared for every situation – and our team didn’t miss a beat delivering the restaurant on time for the projected opening date for their IPO.”
