Banker Steel (an AISC member/AISC certified fabricator) will begin fabricating the steel-framed modules for the world’s tallest modular high-rise building next week, according to a recent AMM article.
Banker expanded its Lynchburg, Va., facility earlier this year to create a purpose-built workshop solely dedicated to the fabrication of these rectangular modules for the project — a 32-story residential tower named B2 — which broke ground late last year at the $4.9 billion, 22-acre Atlantic Yards development in Brooklyn, N.Y.
The modules will be manufactured in Lynchburg, using HSS and wide-flange beams, and assembled in Brooklyn, according to the article. B2 is expected to be available for occupancy in the summer of 2014 and is one of 15 modular buildings planned at the Atlantic Yards site.
