Consultant: arena curtain wall has several deficiencies that need corrective work

Atlantic Yards Report

The latest Site Observation Report by Merritt & Harris, the real estate consultant to the arena PILOT Bond Trustee (and Forest City Ratner/ESDC), dated 4/2/12, reports new problems related to the arena curtain wall, the responsibility of the ill-fated subcontractor ASI Limited, which shut down briefly at the end of last year.

Beyond the delay in preparing and constructing the weathered steel panels, the curtain wall installation has several problems, including "pinched power cables at panel lighting," "misaligned junction between curtain wall panels," and "damaged insulation/vapor barrier on curtain wall panels."

It's not clear how serious the defects are and how long they will take to correct, but ASI Limited is expected to perform the corrective work.


NoLandGrab: Surely those deficiencies won't affect its blast resistance, though, right? Right?
