Abstract:Architectural concrete was selected as the material for all the prime public spaces in the New York Exposition and Convention Center. A construction oriented design provided the basis for high-quality formwork and finish on a fast-track, construction-managed, and government-owned job. Drawings, specifications, and on-site inspection requirements for a large scale, architectural concrete building are discussed using this job as an example. Construction progress is highlighted with particular emphasis on formwork in the context of architectural design, sequence of construction, reinforcing bar design, and quality control.
