Residential | HUDSON MERIDIAN CONSTRUCTION GROUP - QUEENS PLAZA RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT

'All of our subcontractors are selectively
chosen to meet a project's criteria.'
are able to deliver projects on schedule and on budget that are true
to our clients' visions without sacrificing quality," Bana adds.

Still Building
The Queens Plaza Residential Development is one of Hudson Meridian's latest projects. Located in Long Island City, N.Y., Queens Plaza
will boast multiple upscale mixed-use residential towers, as well as a
nearly two-acre private park.
The 580,000 square feet project will be completed in two phases.
Phase I includes the installation and support of excavation on a
surrounding two-and-a-half acre site, construction of foundations
for three residential towers - Tower A, Tower B1 and Tower B2 - in
addition to an amenity building and parking garage.
Phase II includes the complete construction of Tower B1, which is
approximately 611,000 square feet.
Hudson Meridian, who started construction in 2015, is constructing Tower B1, the parking garage and amenity building.
Bana is serving as the project executive on the Queens Plaza project. "We anticipate completion in 2018," Bana says. "Tower B1 will

be 57 stories and feature residential units, a below-grade cellar with
mechanical rooms, 4,858 square feet of retail space, and a lobby on
its ground floor."
He explains the nearly 23,000-square-feet parking garage, which
is adjacent to Tower B1, will consist of 117 parking spaces, and will
also feature bicycle storage, a loading dock and storage rooms.
"The building's façade is predominately a hybrid curtain wall
system by SOTA," Bana says.
The five-story amenity building will be constructed of steel and
concrete on metal deck. Its façade will boast brick, metal panel,
punched windows, curtain wall and a storefront.
"It will feature indoor and outdoor pools, a sauna, basketball
court, squash court, game rooms, demonstration kitchen, as well as
rooftop and outdoor amenity spaces," Bana notes.
A recent survey by The Real Deal ranks Hudson Meridian sixth
among the Top 20 New York City General Contractors by ground-up
projects. Bana adds that the company's success so far is due to its
"great relationships" with subcontractors.

Strong Experience
Luciano Bana, senior vice president at Hudson Meridian Construction Group, has more than 25 years of experience in the construction industry. He's worked on various projects including residential
hi-rise, rental hi-rise, hotels, institutional, medical, lab, technical
facilities and public sector works.
He has also served as a senior project executive on multiple
projects ranging from $1 million to $40 million per year. Some
of these projects include the Beacon Towers, SLS Hotel, Hilton
Gardens Inn and The Addison.
"The Addison is a $140 million project in Brooklyn where I
was in charge of developing and maintaining ACR cost reports,
schedule of values, staffing requirements, and subcontractor award
and approval utilizing a buy line schedule for delivery to maintain
required field deliveries," Bana says.
Bana adds that he also developed, executed and maintained
on-site training, and negotiated and developed risk control and
instituted a CCIP program.
As a senior vice president and project executive for Hudson Meridian Construction Group, Bana provides leadership and oversight
for the day-to-day operations for all the company's construction
and project management activities.
Some of his primary duties include client maintenance, subcontractor performance issues, constructability and technical issues,
risk analysis, and development and implementation of corporate
policies and procedures.
"I also work closely with ownership lenders, consultants, and
site representative, to outline project controls and delivery methods," he says.
