A major capital improvement program is bringing 4 Times Square in New York City to new heights. The building has been specified with galvanized structural steel for state-of-the-art building upgrades that will keep the iconic skyscraper, formerly known as the Conde Nast building, a best-in-class modern office tower. Widely regarded as the first “green” skyscraper in the United States, 4 Times Square has adopted standards for energy efficiency, indoor air quality, tenant comfort, sustainable materials, and responsible construction.
The galvanized steel specified for this building will provide decades of maintenance free protection and a life long product that is aesthetically appealing in the heart of downtown New York City.
Hot dip galvanized steel is a perfect fit for environmentally conscious construction like this. Zinc and steel are among the most highly recycled metals in the world. Galvanizing has been proven to be more effective in preventing rust and more environmentally sound than painting. Painting not only requires twice the resources of hot-dip galvanizing, it produces double the greenhouse effect. The galvanized steel specified on this building will provide decades of maintenance free protection and a life long product that is aesthetically appealing in the heart of downtown New York City.
