Industry 80 Hair Salon (Tuckahoe, NY)

This former train substation in Tuckahoe, New York, has undergone a remarkable transformation. At over 100 years old it sits across the street from the very train station it used to service, which is now known as the Tuckahoe Metro-North train station.


The building has seen many changes over the years, but none as drastic as the recent renovation that made it a modern, energy efficient building with space available for many different tenants. One of those tenants includes the Industry 80 hair salon which is an upscale salon that, like the rest of the building, has a very contemporary feel to it. Because of this, the building owner wanted an HVAC system that could not only give him the right look, but be energy efficient as well.

Strategy

Because he had already heard of and was impressed with The Unico System, the building owner called upon Matt and Mike Carlo of Innovative Air Solutions to do the installation. The hair salon utilized two Unico 2.5 ton blowers with Advanced Control Board and hot water coils matched to Trane condensing units. Since the hair salon wanted an industrial look with exposed ductwork, Matt and Mike installed The Unico System with special fittings to work with the metal spiral duct. The fittings enable Unico slotted outlets to come straight off of the plenum as shown. The plenum was placed around the perimeter of the salon for maximum comfort.

Results

The results are spectacular. What was once an old, dilapidated part of the train station is now a high-end salon catering to all types of clientele. The building owner, and the owners of the salon, Dominic Greco Trupia and Geo Greco Trupia, love the look of the ductwork and outlets, but more importantly, they love the comfort enjoyed by their customers and employees due to The Unico System.
