“IR Analyzers was with us step by step...the process was seamless!”

IR Analyzers / Vector Mapping is proud to have been selected to perform membrane integrity testing of the New York Rangers Ice Rink and the new roof system at Madison Square Garden using cutting-edge Electronic Leak Detection technologies. Opening on February 11, 1968, Madison Square Garden is now considered to be the oldest and most active major sporting facility in the New York metropolitan area. Its recent renovation included the re-roofing and waterproofing of the Garden's unique suspension cable roof system. Jones Lang LaSalle, Turner Construction Company, Brisbin Brook Beynon Architects and Wolkow Braker Roofing Corporation were major players in the project.

Since opening in its present location, ‘The Garden’ has truly been a stage to history. One of the most famous venues in the world for music and sports, the Garden is home to the New York Rangers, the New York Knicks, Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, and the Ice Capades. It is the oldest arena in the National Hockey League and the second-oldest arena in the National Basketball Association. Madison Square Garden is the third-busiest music arena in the world in terms of ticket sales, behind the Manchester Arena and The O2 Arena, both in England. More...


Hudson Yards
  Hudson Yards, the largest private real estate development in U.S. history.
Hudson Yards

Hudson Yards will be at the epicenter of Manhattan’s New West Side. This $20 billion, 28-acre development will transform the city's skyline and is expected to draw an estimated 65,000 visitors a day to Manhattan’s West Side. IR Analyzers / Vector Mapping is honored to have been selected to perform ELD Fusion® integrity testing on this unprecedented project.

Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States, with more than 17 million square feet of commercial and residential space, five state-of-the-art office towers, over 100 shops and restaurants, approximately 5,000 residences, a 750-seat public school, a 200-room luxury hotel, and 14 acres of public open space. More than 24 million people are expected to visit Hudson Yards every year, and the project will create more than 23,000 construction jobs.

Hudson Yards is being built on some of the last undeveloped land on the island, towering over a working rail yard. Two huge “platforms” will be constructed to bridge over 30 active Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) train tracks, three subsurface rail tunnels, and the Gateway Tunnel, which is currently under construction. These platforms will cover approximately three quarters of the rail yard; finished buildings will extend through the platform and rise above it.

Preparations on the Eastern Rail Yard platform began at the end of 2013. More...


One World Trade Center
One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
One World Trade Center

One World Trade Center is the primary building of the new World Trade Center complex in New York City’s Lower Manhattan. The 104-story supertall skyscraper stands on the northwest corner of the 16-acre World Trade Center site, on the site of the original 6 World Trade Center. Electronic Leak Detection testing on this historic project was conducted by IR Analyzers / Vector Mapping.

The tower contains more than 40,000 metric tons of structural steel and 49,000 cubic yards of concrete. It was built with recycled construction debris and materials and generates power internally. The site was constructed to collect rainwater for the plaza's plants, to assist cooling, and to supply the memorial fountain. The tower officially opened on November 3, 2014. On May 29, 205, the One World Observatory opened, offering 360 degree views of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

Construction on below-ground utility relocations, footings, and foundations for the building began on April 27, 2006. On March 30, 2009, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed that the building would be known by its legal name, One World Trade Center, rather than the colloquial name, Freedom Tower. On May 10, 2013, the final component of the skyscraper’s spire was installed, making One World Trade Center the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and the fourth-tallest skyscraper in the world by pinnacle height.

50 UN Plaza, San Francisco, CA

The renovation of 50 United Nations Plaza (UNP), a 350,000-square-foot federal building in San Francisco, will be one of the first GSA historical restorations anticipated to achieve LEED Platinum Certification. The building is currently undergoing its first major upgrade since it was constructed in 1936 in the heart of San Francisco’s Civic Center. Membrane integrity testing on this important project was performed by IR Analyzers / Vector Mapping using Electronic Leak Detection.

“IR Analyzers conducted the testing in a prompt, thorough and accurate manner.”  

The project re-opened November 2013. While it can be challenging for a historical remodel project to receive LEED Certification, 50 UNP exceeds LEED Platinum Certification standards through its sustainable site, overall energy reduction and water efficiency. The current renovation project includes seismic retrofit, building systems upgrade, roof replacement, window restoration, tenant improvements and historic-materials restoration.

A ribbon design in the courtyard by artist Cliff Garten incorporates plans by the original architect, Arthur Brown Jr., the mastermind behind City Hall and three other Civic Center landmarks. The $122 million renovation was funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. More...

Union Square Condominiums, Chicago, IL

IR Analyzers / Vector Mapping is proud to have been selected to perform membrane integrity testing of the new roof system at Chicago's Union Square Condominiums using Electronic Leak Detection. The attractive Union Square Condominium complex was built in the late 1990s in a sweeping renovation of the former Union Special Machine Company plant, originally built in 1918. Located at the corner of West Hubbard and North Franklin Streets in the trendy River North neighborhood of Chicago, Union Square houses 216 modern "soft loft" homes in two separate buildings with a shared courtyard.

“..I appreciate the professionalism of your firm..the focus on client service was evident.”

In the late nineteenth century, the Union Bag Company began building on the success of its bag seaming machines by developing a line of industrial sewing machines. By 1887, the company had outgrown its original manufacturing plant, and moved to the site of the present-day Union Square Condominiums at the corner of West Hubbard and North Franklin Streets, in a building then occupied by the Continental Bolt Works.

Federal Reserve Bank of Boston

IR Analyzers / Vector Mapping is honored to have been selected to perform an Infrared Building Envelope Analysis and an Infrared Roof Moisture Survey for the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. The 'Fed' is Boston’s third tallest building. In close proximity to Boston Harbor, the Fort Point Channel and the major intermodal South Station terminal, the building is marked by a distinctive opening near ground level which allows sea breezes to pass through. The building was completed in 1977 and is 614 feet tall with 32 floors.

The office tower, linked to a four-story wing, was erected between December 1972 and November 1974. The architects designed the tower office floors that rise from a 140-foot bridge “suspended” in the air between two end cores. A 600 ton steel structural truss marks the beginning of the tower’s “office in the air.” The exterior is natural anodized aluminum, which acts as a curtain wall and weatherproof facing. The aluminum spandrels shade the building interior from the sun in the summertime and allow more sunlight in the winter months. More...
