Holt Construction was hired to provide general contracting services at Madison Square Garden to replace and repair the support structure, sidewalks and grating along the event center.
Over time the existing concrete encasement around the sidewalk structural steel framing (circa 1910) was observed to be cracking, spalling, delaminating, and carbonating. With the loss of the existing concrete encasement the existing support members and column steel was left to the elements and suffered serious damage thus compromising the building and sidewalk integrity. Holt construction removed the existing concrete encasement and provided new structural steel supports around the entire sporting facility. All work had to be carefully scheduled as the area around our work and the event center itself continued normal operations.
