The galvanizer played an integral role in helping to manage the tracking and storage of each piece of hot-dip galvanized steel on the project. Coordination in terms of sequencing and delivery schedule were keys to the success of the project. Often times, steel was galvanized and delivered to the job site just in time. Delaying or holding up a load or a crane pick was not an option on this project, as each load of steel was delivered one at a time, often in the dark of night into midtown Manhattan.
