10 Hudson Yards Cable Wall Progress:
A lot can change in a few months! Since our last update, our work at 10 Hudson Yards has made tremendous progress. The Coach Atrium cables have been fully tensioned and the fittings and glass have been installed. Caulking between the glass panels has begun. Check out the photos and descriptions below to see how it’s been done.
Here you can see glaziers on a swing stage platform in front of the Coach Atrium wall. Look at those crisp reflections of the surrounding buildings in the glass! Really sharp! Up to this point, the fittings and glass have been installed onto the tension cables that secure the 207 foot tall facade in place. The workers are preparing to caulk the facade joints with silicone for the final weather seal.
This is a shot from below of the entire Coach Atrium wall complete with glass and hardware. Notice the difference from last month when only the tension cables were in place. The glass has been clamped onto the properly tensioned cables that are connected to the surrounding boundary structure that supports hundreds of thousands of pounds of tension needed to sustain the system.
Dubbed the largest construction project of its kind, the Hudson Yards project masterplan will include over 16 skyscrapers and 17,4400,000 sqft of office, residential and retail space stretched across twenty-eight acres on the Far West Side. We’re proud to be a part of this project and are excited to bring you more updates as the project moves forward!
Next month, stay tuned for our update on setting the face glass and entrance portals for the lobby walls. Keep an eye on our LinkedIn company page and blogs for more exciting project examples and updates!
