Executive Photos NYC: Skanska Safety Week Industrial Photography at the World Trade Center


Skanska, one of the world's leading project development & construction groups, hired Executive Photos NYC for on-site industrial photography to commemorate Safety Week, which took place this year on April 25th - May 1st, 2016.

Bill Flemming, president & CEO of Skanska Building, visited job sites with peers from Hunter Roberts & Lend Lease, and discussed safety protocol, with the goal of providing more consistent and safer protocol across several construction companies. 

Flemming mentioned, as quoted from the Skanska blog post, "To me, we are not successful if we put our workers at risk to deliver projects. We work safely, or not at all." 

This is the 12th Safety Week celebrated by Skanska & the 3rd annual Construction Industry Safety Week, where 50 other construction firms have pledged to thank construction workers for their safety protocol and inspire additional vigilance and care. 

In order to be an on-site industrial photographer in NYC, one must be constantly on the look-out while navigating potentially dangerous situations. One must be comfortable climbing ladders & narrow stairs with equipment, and having an assistant is advisable. The industrial photographer documents construction as it's happening in a documentary fashion, and then additionally takes portraits when the job requires.

Images: Phase 1 of the Moynihan Station project nears completion in the historic James A. Farley Post Office


Moynihan Station is to occupy the current Farley Post Office on 34th Street to help alleviate pedestrian congestion for the Amtrak, New Jersey Transit & Long Island Railroad in Penn Station, across the street.  While the plan was conceived 25 years ago, ground was broken on the project in 2010 and Phase 1 is expected to be completed this year, in 2016.


Skanska, one of the worlds leading civil construction groups, hired Michael Benabib, industrial photographer, to make images of both employees and of the construction project . After donning hard hats and reflective vests, we entered the construction site – to document the progress on phase 1, which involves installing an emergency ventilation system and new entrances to the building, as well as photograph the empty spaces where phase 2 will begin.

The James A. Farley Post Office Building was designated a New York City Landmark in 1966, so extra care on this project is made to keep the external façade of the building intact.
