COWI North America (formerly Buckland & Taylor)
New York, NY, USA
The World Trade Center Transportation Hub (Oculus) pushes the boundaries of structural engineering. COWI North America applied bridge engineering methods for the successful construction of this unique building. A free cantilever segmental erection scheme allowed for a significant reduction in falsework and provided opportunities for geometry adjustments where needed. Applying bridge engineering concepts and first principles allowed this complex structure to be constructed safely and accurately.
