"Communication is everything. It was the lifeblood for the success that we had on this project." 

- Bill Mandara, Mancini

Visualize the hustle and bustle of Times Square, the pulsing core of New York City. Now, imagine elevating an entire structure in the midst of one of the busiest intersections in North America if not the World. This is the scale of the TSX Broadway undertaking to which Bill Mandara, Benjamin Alper, and Joe Levi have dedicated their expertise. 

Last year, the renowned Palace Theatre, which has hosted performances by legends like Judy Garland and Bob Hope, was elevated 30 feet to create space for premium retail outlets beneath it. The theatre's prime location at the most bustling intersection in the Northern Hemisphere, right in the middle of Times Square, prompted this decision.

Over a span of seven years, this trio, along with their respective teams at Mancini Duffy, Severud Associates, and Pavarini McGovern, persevered through a myriad of obstacles and invented novel methods to accomplish what seemed to be an insurmountable task. 

The project, which is now on the brink of completion, is set to revolutionize the way individual Architecture, Engineering, and Construction firms interact with each other and their public and private clients on large-scale projects. 

It stands as a powerful tribute to their joint creativity, persistence, and the efficacy of their collaboration. Reflecting on their journey, they recount the knowledge gained, the bonds formed, and the delight of witnessing their dream materialize.

In this episode, you will be able to:

  • Discover the pivotal role of collaboration and coordination in managing large-scale projects.
  • Unravel the inherent challenges and complexities involved in the massive TSX Broadway project.
  • Understand the indispensable importance of effective communication with regulatory agencies.
  • Be exposed to the unique considerations when operating within the dynamic space of New York City.

All of this and much more are on this episode of The Zweig Letter Podcast.
