Barclays Facade Work Ramps Up

Tom Kaminski / WCBS Chopper 880

After a few months break, workmen are again installing the weathered steel panels that will make up the distinctive outer "skin" of Barclays Center. The panels are being installed around the back of the arena and in upper elevations. The break had been planned as part of the construction timetable. Then, new concerns about the schedule arose in December when the company fabricating the 11,998 panels shut down.

The facade, which could be complete as early as May 23, will encircle Barclays Center, including the so-called "brow" that sweeps around the front of the arena. The final pieces cover a 30-foot high canopy that will shelter part of the main entrance plaza. The canopy includes a circular video wall inside an "oculus" open to the sky. Work on the canopy has not yet begun.
