Facade Fabricator Back in Business

SHoP Architects via Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment

Fabrication of weathered steel for the Barclays Center façade resumed over the weekend after being halted in late December when the company doing the work shut its doors, reports Crain's New York. The company, ASI Limited, reopened after a financial infusion.

The arena's contractor, Hunt Construction Group, worked with an insurer to get the plant working again, said an FCR spokesperson. When ASI shut down, it said it could no longer make money and laid off 250 employees. Hunt is also looking for another company that could resume fabrication should ASI suffer another shutdown. The company is responsible for fabricating 11,998 panels, each of them unique, for the arena's distinctive exterior.
