Bright Lights, Big City: A Taste of Stateside Success for the Vebro Group!

The Vebro Group is living the American dream in partnership with leading US-based fluid-applied waterproofing systems provider, TQ3, who have incorporated solvent-free epoxy resin materials manufactured at the Group’s UK Headquarters in Manchester as part of a wider system of waterproofing, traffic coating and tank lining solutions on several landmark buildings and structures located across NYC!

Moving across Manhattan Island, it may be surprising to learn that the following iconic buildings and landmarks feature even just a little slice of Trafford Park!

The Vessel

The extraordinary centrepiece of Hudson Yards is its spiral staircase, a soaring landmark known as ‘The Vessel’. This interactive artwork was imagined by Thomas Heatherwick as a focal point for visitor to enjoy new perspectives of the city from different heights, angles, and vantage points.

Comprised of 154 intricately interconnecting flights of stairs – almost 2,500 individual steps and 80 landings – the vertical climb offers remarkable views of the city, the Hudson River and beyond!

Lincoln Center

Lincoln Center (or the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to use its full name) is a 16.3-acre complex of buildings in the Lincoln Square neighbourhood of Manhattan in NYC. It has thirty indoor and outdoor facilities and is host to 5 million visitors annually.

The centre is home to some of the world’s finest performing arts organisations, including the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet and Juilliard School of Music.

Carnegie Hall

First opened in 1891, the legendary Carnegie Hall – located on the corner of 57th Street and Seventh Avenue – is a national historic concert venue comprising of three halls.

Presenting classical, jazz, folk, world and popular music with breakthrough and veteran performers, Carnegie has become the emblem of musical achievement around the world and has showcased artists from Tchaikovsky to Mahler, Horowitz to Callas to Bernstein, even Judy Garland and the Beatles!

The MetLife Building

The MetLife Building is a skyscraper at Park Avenue and 45th Street in the Midtown Manhattan neighbourhood of the city.

Designed by Richard Roth, Walter Gropius and Pietro Belluschi, the building stands at close to 250 metres tall over 59 storeys. It was the world’s largest commercial office space by area with 220,000 m2 of usable office space when it first opened in the 1960’s. Today, the MetLife Building remains one of the 100 tallest buildings in the US.

Chrysler Building

Arguably one of the most famous buildings in NYC given its dominant presence in the Manhattan skyline, the Chrysler Building is a classic American example of Art Deco architecture and still regarded by many architects as the finest building in the city.

Originally built in a bid to become the tallest building in the world, the Chrysler Building only attained this accolade for 11 months before being surpassed by the Empire State Building. Nonetheless, it was the first man-made structure taller than 1,000 ft and is still the tallest brick building in the world (albeit having an internal steel skeleton).
