Under Construction – WTC3 updates
Progress is coming along nicely on the lobby of World Trade Center - Tower 3 with architecture firm Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners as the design architects, Beyer Blinder Belle as project architects, and fabricators Mariani Metal implementing the transit hall space. In recent news, the MTA opened the subway entrance at WTC3 for the first time since the events of 9/11. We at LED have been working over the past two years to provide specialty detail engineering (bomb-blast resistant glazing) and bespoke metal components for a majority of the lobby/transit hall and interior. The project comes with unique challenges to realize the design architect's detailed aesthetic vision and to satisfy the requirements of the Port Authority. When finished, the laser-welded, high-end stainless steel duplex components will elegantly support engineered security glazing to create a model of excellence for material usage, construction tolerances, and engineered design.
