Galvan Provides Corrosion ProtectionA major capital improvement program is bringing 4 Times Square in New York City to new heights. Galvan Industries is rust proofing structural steel for state-of-the-art building upgrades that will keep the iconic skyscraper, formerly known as the Conde Nast building, a best-in-class modern office tower.

Widely regarded as the first “green” skyscraper in the United States, 4 Times Square has adopted standards for energy efficiency, indoor air quality, tenant comfort, sustainable materials, and responsible construction.

Hot dip galvanized steel is a perfect fit for environmentally conscious construction like this. Zinc and steel are among the most highly recycled metals in the world. Also, studies have proven galvanizing to be more effective in preventing rust and more environmentally sound than painting. Painting not only requires twice the resources of hot-dip galvanizing, it produces double the greenhouse effect.

“We are proud of all the work we do,” said Galvan president Laurens Willard, “but we are especially proud to be chosen for such high profile, environmentally friendly project. We won’t drop the ball!”
