Corus banks New York supply deal
Corus will supply more than 3,000t of steel beams and plates to developer and main contractor Douglas Durst, for the construction of the new Bank of America (BAC) tower in New York.
The 52-storey 300m-tall tower is scheduled to open in 2008 and will consist of more than 2m/m² of floorspace, half of which will serve as BACs headquarters.
On completion the building will be the second tallest tower in the city, and as well as office space for other tenants it will house the reconstructed Henry Miller Theatre.
Designed by Cook + Fox Architects, the steel, glass and aluminum skyscraper will incorporate a number of environmental features such as wind turbines, floor-to-ceiling insulating glass and LED lights.
Peter Joyce, Sales Manager for Corus said: “The tower is a showcase for environmentally friendly design and, as a material, steel naturally lends itself to structurally efficient and flexible buildings.”
