PLANT a company from Randy Polumbo, specializing in high quality environmentally responsible construction and consulting. Plant's methods and team are gathered from the best practices, professionals, and subcontractors along with the personal attention Polumbo is known for in his accomplished career.
Polumbo, master builder, sculptor, and LEED AP, has been building impeccable custom, technically complex, residential and commercial projects for the past 24 years. He has worked in all of New York City's finest buildings - from Fifth and Park Avenue apartments to luxury hotel residences and penthouse additions, as well as large townhouse and loft renovations. All his projects reflect his dedication to quality, service and highlight his ability to meet challenging deadlines and budgets. Projects range from modern to traditional: Fox Nahem, Shelton Mindel, Deborah Berke, Gluckman Mayner, Giorgio Armani, Maya Lin, Santiago Calatrava, Rafael Vinoly, Nate Berkus, Jacques Grange, Thomas O'Brien, and Daniel Romualdez are all repeat clients.
Polumbo attended The Cooper Union, graduating with a degree in sculpture. His art work can be found in galleries, museums and private collections around the world. His background and training, the team he has assembled, and his project/client list all demonstrate that there is as much "Art" as "Science" in building these remarkable, one of a kind spaces. Originally working under his own name, he then founded 3-D Laboratory, a highly respected mid-sized firm. Most recently, he has launched PLANT to infuse high end work with both economy, and environmental accountability. The same array of high end building services remain while adding green consulting as well as skillful environmentally sound retrofitting of existing spaces and structures.
PLANT's current and recently completed projects include a classic residence at 834 Fifth Avenue, a multiple complex modern projects at 15 Central Park West, a townhouse renovation on the Upper West Side, a gut renovation of an estate in Greenwich, and an "extreme green" duplex penthouse on Hudson Street with rain and gray water recycling, "off the grid capable" solar energy, built primarily of recycled and salvaged material.
