Madison Square Garden, NY, NY
CitiStructure was retained by Cable News Network (CNN) to build their temporary studios to cover the 2004 Republican National Convention held at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Time was the biggest challenge on this project as the Garden is virtually in continuous use throughout the entire year. The CNN studios, including a green room, were shoe-horned into three sky boxes at the Garden in only two weeks time. The project involved extensive electrical and communications work so that CNN’s hi-tech communication equipment could be installed. Once the convention was over, CitiStructure had only one week to tear down all the work and return it back to its previous configuration.
