Premier, 65-Story High-Rise Building
Navillus’s skill and expertise in concrete superstructure are evident in its work on 400 5th Avenue - a premiere 65-story high-rise building in the center of midtown Manhattan, echoing in the shadow of the world-renowned Empire State Building.
This project has been commended not only by the Construction Manager, but also by such city agencies as the New York City Department of Buildings for its continuing vigilance of safety and quality. All of which attributed to winning a CIB Award and being featured on the History Channel. Navillus is the first in the city to introduce the Doka Formwork system of safety, which protects three and a half floors of active work. Hydraulically lifted, this system raised itself with the height of the building. Even while using this complex system, Navillus was able to master a two-day concrete cycle throughout the structure’s typical floors. 400 5th Avenue is truly an achievement of safety, quality, and efficiency combined.
