To establish their presence in Midtown Manhattan, Sur La Table opened this 6,174 square foot retail and kitchen demonstration space in the award winning LEED-NC Gold certified Hearst Tower.  Sur La Table is a retailer of utensils, countertop kitchen equipment and sealed packaged foods aimed at the residential sales market.  Their goal is to create the best place for cooks to shop. 

Rushing’s Sustainability Studio guided the Owner and design team in identifying sustainability strategies that were in alignment with the goals of Sur La Table and their new space.  In order to meet the goal to achieve LEED-CI Certification at the “Certified” level, Rushing reviewed drawings and specifications, managed the team in gathering all necessary LEED documentation and administered LEED certification online.
