The Forum Renovation

The Forum Renovation

Originally built in 1966, the historic Forum underwent a major renovation by new owner Madison Square Garden Company in 2014. Morley’s concrete team collaborated with Clark Construction to complete two new elevator shafts, footings, slab infill, drill and epoxy work, stadium step repairs, curbs, pads and re-sloping of ramps. A new center floor ring capable of holding 350,000 pounds will allow it to accommodate contemporary concert production needs. The renovated Forum is now a single bowl with configurable seating from 17,500 to 8,000 seats and is the largest indoor performance venue in the country.

 

Morley coordinated with many tradesmen (more than 600 craftsmen worked on the project) in order to sequence work to meet the tight schedule.
