Beacon’s Dan Newcombe Consulting On One of the Largest Super-Tall Skyscraper Construction Projects: One Vanderbilt

Beacon’s Dan Newcombe has been providing construction consulting services for one of the largest skyscraper projects underway in New York City—One Vanderbilt Place, a 67-floor, supertall skyscraper being built at the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue in midtown Manhattan, just west of Grand Central Station. September 19th marked a major milestone for the project as the tower was topped out, two months ahead of schedule.

Groundbreaking on One Vanderbilt was held in October 2016. When completed in 2020, the 1.6-million-square-foot tower will be 1,301-feet-high at roof level and its spire will reach 1,401 feet, making it the city's fourth-tallest building. Dan was among some of the key professionals involved in the project who were invited to sign the structural steel I-Beam used to top out the building. The I-Beam was one of 26,000 pieces of steel used in the building's construction.
