Building Use: Infrastructure

Date Completed: 2016
Navillus Contracting helped construct three stations along the new Second Avenue subway line, which opened January 1, 2017. The three new stations, 72nd, 86th and 96th streets allowed for the extension of the Q line to now run between Manhattans Upper East Side to Coney Island in Brooklyn. Navillus performed tile and stone work in support of some of New York City’s most-prominent landmarks, provided the subcontracting services on behalf of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). Our entire team at Navillus Contracting is proud to have played a role in this vital enhancement of our subway system.
At the East 96th Street station, Navillus performed ceramic and granite tile services and also installed granite and terracotta cladding while at the East 72nd Street station, the company delivered ceramic and granite tile, granite cladding, and masonry services. Navillus performed masonry work at the 63rd Street station at Lexington Avenue. At all sites, the company installed granite at street level ancillary buildings and parapets and granite pavers, cladding and ceramic tile on the sub-street platforms.
The first phase of the Second Avenue line, comprising a total of six stations, is initially expected to carry some 200,000 riders daily.
