Featured Project: Precision-Crated Stairway to Heaven

January 24, 2019

Our friends at Transit Systems, Inc. (TSI) contacted the Precision Crating team to lend their expertise to an immense, high-end woodwork job: crate a magnificent maple sky bridge intended for final placement in Waterline Square, a luxury Manhattan skyscraper (seen here as a rendering in the opening video clip). The massive piece, comprised of a bridge and stairs, was constructed in sections at a custom yacht builder in Maine.

Our Precision Craters were tasked to build 48 crates, many of which were over 20 feet long, to protect the dismantled maple pieces while in transit and in storage. Daunting mission? No blank stairs from this team! As always, the crew took the assignment in stride.

"You guys knocked it out of the park on this one," said Adam Emerson, Director, Sales & Business Development at TSI. "I look forward to working with you on the next project." By job’s end, TSI required two flatbed tractor trailers to fit the entire shipment.

At the completion of Waterline Square’s construction, the sky bridge will be delivered, assembled, and installed by custom architectural metal and glass firm Jaroff Design.
