35 Hudson Yards was our most ambitious project to date. We delivered more than 22,000 assembled stone units for this project over a 14 month period. Using state-of-the-art CNC machinery we were able to achieve overall tolerances of +/- 0.7 mm on assembled pieces ensuring that each panel lines up perfectly with the next, avoiding any shadows cast between the stones regardless of the time of day. The level of exactness is an achievement that is basically unheard of in the natural stone industry and sets the bar for future curtain wall installations using natural stone. By standardizing production and working with New Hudson Facades on the bracket design on which the stone elements were assembled to we were able to mass produce these pieces reaching an output of up to 120 units per day.
