The Brooklyn Navy Yard is one of New York City’s fastest growing centers of technology, design, and creative manufacturing. From 1801 to 1966, the yard served as the US Navy’s premier shipbuilding and production complex. Today, it is home to more than 200 businesses, many specializing in the AEC industry. This tour will visit three of these industry leaders within the Brooklyn Navy Yard: SITU Fabrication, New Lab, and the Consortium for Research and Robotics.
Advanced registration is required for this event. Confirmed attendees will be emailed an event pass that will be necessary to enter the Brooklyn Navy Yard on the day of the event. Please allow adequate travel time to get to the area. Participants should meet 15 minutes prior to the event time at SITU Fabrication (Building 132). Groups of 20 will then be led to the next two tour locations.
Drinks and snacks will be provided over an informal discussion at SITU Fabrication after the conclusion of the tour.
