JRM Construction Management acted as the construction manager of Etsy’s new nine-story headquarters in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The client wished to build a headquarter that was best for the long-term health of the ecosystem. Etsy, along with JRM, pursued the Petal Certification through the Living Building Challenge (LBC), issued by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI).
JRM constructed an auditorium, two galleries, a green library, yoga studio and bike storage areas with showers to support a carbon-neutral commute as well as multiple exterior terraces with extensive planting. There is also a cafeteria, dining spaces, multipurpose rooms, craft lab and woodshop and a recording studio. The new headquarters aims to provide a comfortable, safe and imaginative working environment for all employees.
