The Javits Center expansion was no easy feat but one our team was ready to take on. The expansion covered over 1.2 million square feet of added space, all of which required new wayfinding signage. We fabricated and installed large monument signs, directories, and emergency egress signs, just to name a few. We could not be more proud of the entire Crown Signs team for completing this project.
Even architectural landmarks need signage. The Vessel in Hudson Yards is an interactive sculptural piece made of over 150 flights of stairs. One can imagine the installation on such a project was atypical, to say the least.
Depth was the name of the game in this project. Deep fabricated pieces at some of the smallest sizes we have ever had to work with. The signs identifying the book genres had to be movable to allow the librarians to adjust locations with book demand. Movable, yet secure to resist tampering or falling. And if it was not fabricated it was screen printed directly on site. Concrete walls might not have been the easiest application surface, but our experienced production manager was able to pull it off beautifully.
