Jacobson & Company,Inc. who have worked on projects for Yankee Stadium, Lincoln Center, The New York Times headquarters, and Rockefeller Center have been chosen to construct a complex ceiling installation for one of the world’s largest hedge fund companies.
Jacobson Project Foreman Mike Giblin, “In my over 30 years as part of the Jacobson team, I have never worked on a more challenging instillation.” Because of the complex nature of this 9,800 s.f. custom COMPline ceiling, Mike personally went to Germany to visit the manufacturer, the Lindner Group. This leading European engineer of top quality interior fitouts designed the hi-tech COMPline, a honeycomb panel system comprised of custom triangular shapes with edgebanding, fully concealed torsion spring access panels, custom white paint finish.
Kevin Leddy, Structure Tone Superintendent, commented, “I have worked on projects with Jacobson in the past, but never a ceiling of this magnitude. Scheduling was strained at first since this type of instillation was never done before, but Jacobson stayed on track with the addition of some double shifts. There was a learning process, and Jacobson caught on quickly and did a really great job. Their work exceeded the owner’s architect’s expectations. From my perceptive Jacobson is definitely the ‘Go-to-Guy’ for this type of complex ceiling installation.”
Jacobson & Company, Inc. has been an integral part of the New York and New Jersey area construction scene for over 120 years. At the outset (1889), Jacobson specialized in ornamental plaster ceilings, but moved on to acoustical ceilings and drywall construction as styles and systems changed.
