5 Beekman - Turrets
Intelligent Technologies And Design has provided the custom-designed steel turrets atop of the 5 Beekman building.
Starting from the architect’s sketch, we were able to provide complete design and engineering for this custom steel structure, from the initial structural analysis that enabled us to establish the exact dimensions of the structure and its components, to the final fabrication drawings that defined the precise shape and dimension of even the smallest element.
Upon approval of the fabrication drawings, we were able to manufacture these incredible steel turrets in segments that are large enough to enable easy installation in the field yet small enough to fit into shipping containers to be delivered on site and be manageable on such a demanding site as the heart of Manhattan’s financial district.
Installation is to be performed in September 2015 by our partner Crowne Architectural Systems, Inc.
