In order to follow the steel production for the roof of the Louis Armstrong Stadium in Corona Park New York, with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) at earliest, RINA was requested to perform its test agency activities in an Italian shop. At first, the production had to last 4 months, but in total, it lasted 9 months’ time.
Most relevant activities to be performed were:
Major challenge of the service was to follow the production in a right way with the continuous request of the client in such a limited time without a good schedule of the shop production.
In order to provide the required service, RINA sent to the shop a multi-disciplinary team of inspectors:
Some of them were resident, because we needed a full time presence for welding and NDT activities.
With a continuous collaboration between the shop and our coordinator and project manager, we found the best solution to go away with the production and respect the schedule. At the end of the production, in a very short time, we sent to the client the certificates with the Release note of the items inspected.
The worldwide service coverage and the advice of a qualified international Company as RINA, gave the client the opportunity to have a partner in Italy that can validate the certificates in the respect of the international law, moreover providing valuable support, information and comments to complete the production in the most efficient way.
As an additional service, RINA also provided the client some peculiar information about the Design Verification, in order to obtain the approval of the project in time for the building realization.
