Con Edison Conservation Center
New York, NY


Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects was responsible for all interior design and architectural work for four Consolidated Edison projects. They include the Energy Conservation Center in the Chrysler Building, two Customer Service Offices, and the Emergency Control Center at the Indian Point Nuclear Power Station.

The 7,500 square-foot Energy Conservation Center is located on the ground floor of New York’s art deco Chrysler Building. Designed with energy-saving techniques that begin in the lobby, the area is heated via ducts that recycle hot air thrown off from 25 projects, which provide a slide show in the back of the showroom. Low energy lighting illuminates the exhibits and the Center’s layout is as efficient as its energy measures.

The Emergency Control Center is a central meteorological station with computerized mapping radiation monitoring and direct-line communications equipment. The Center also contains observation facilities for regulatory agency personnel, government and military officials, as well as press accommodations.
