Project Scope

Our firm completed work in 1998 on a $47 million, 6-year effort to upgrade and rehabilitate the Grand Central Station Subway Complex. Our scope of work included the lighting of the IRT, Flushing and shuttle platforms, stairs, passageways, mezzanines, escalators, and entrances in accordance with the latest edition of the New York City Transit Authority Station Planning and Design Guidelines. A critical and unique aspect of this project was the development and execution of a 600-foot-long light sculpture for the Flushing platform. This sculpture, sponsored by MTA Arts for Transit, incorporated in a novel and visually striking manner all of the normal elements that make up a NYCT station, including normal and emergency lighting multiservice wire ways, speakers and signage.
