ERI Wins Juicy New York Contract

ERI Wins Juicy New York Contract

Electronics Research Inc. said it has been awarded the contract to build the master TV and FM antenna structure and to provide structural analysis and supervision services for a project atop 4 Times Square — the Conde Nast building — in New York City.
It will be the first new broadcast structure in the city since the 2001 terrorism attacks. The owners hope the new structure will attract clients who will use it as an auxiliary site, according to a story that will appear in the June 4 issue of Radio World.
The contract was put out by The Durst Organization to provide a 385-foot tower to be mounted on the building, a 48-story office tower at the corner of 42nd St. and Broadway. The contract includes site supervision related to the erection of the tower. ERI will provide structural analysis needed to support the modification of the existing 75-foot tower so that the roof can be made to accommodate the new tower, which will support a new master FM antenna and multiple analog and digital television antennas.
The companies did not reveal the value of the contract, although Radio World reports that the overall project is valued at $25 million.
