Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Expansion

Adaptive Green began consulting with the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Expansion builders (Lendlease Turner JV) in 2018.

With a $1.5 billion budget for the Expansion, Adaptive Green implemented a unique combination of green infrastructure leveraging the American hydrotech Intensive Garden Roof Assembly from an operational orchard, urban farm, meadow, permeable pavement, and greywater recycling irrigation systems.  Upon completion, the Javits Center is the third-largest green roof in America and boasts the country’s most significant state-funded urban rooftop farm.

Adaptive Green performed the work in accordance with the Project Labor Agreement and New York State’s Minority Business Enterprise requirements.
