SEAoNY Programs Committee Presents:

TSX Broadway and the Lifting of the Palace Theater

Times Square in New York is known for many things, including its Broadway Theaters, luxurious hotels, trendy retail, great entertainment venues and flashy billboards. With TSX Broadway, the project contains all these items in one building. But, what makes TSX Broadway exceptional is not just that it contains all the elements of Times Square in one location, but it is the way in which existing elements were shifted and juxtaposed with new elements, that makes this Entertainment complex and hotel tower a unique structural engineering feat, culminating in the raising of the raising of the existing historic Palace Theater.

Learning Objective:

1. Describe the design and installation process of heavily reinforced post-tensioned (PT) girders
