The Barclay Center is part of the Brooklyn’s Atlantic Yards 22-acre complex. The arena is the new home to the Nets Basketball team, and houses a running track and ice rink. The Center has 18,000 seats for basketball games, 19,000 seats for concerts, and 104 luxury suites. The Center’s frame is steel with structural precast seating bowl and a weathered steel rain screen facade.

Vidaris provided part time special inspection monitoring of the mock-up and shop fabrication of the exterior wall and full time monitoring of the field installation, for compliance with approved drawings and specifications.
