SITU Fabrication specializes in the engineering and construction of experimental and technically demanding projects. Visitors will tour our 10,000-square-foot production facility in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where we provide comprehensive fabrication services to architectural designers, real estate leaders, select artists, and creative teams. Our expertise is built on the complexity and customization of each project in our portfolio, allowing us to work efficiently across a wide range of materials, techniques, and technologies. On the tour, visitors will be able to see our advanced production capabilities including CNC-milling, metalwork, specialty casting, and thermoforming in action.

The fabrication studio is on the ground floor and is accessible, however the bathrooms are up a staircase and are not accessible. Closed-toe shoes required.

Attendees must check-in with security at any Navy Yard gate. The gate closest to SITU is the Sands Street gate. Please make sure you register with an email address you can access, as we will send BNY passes to your email prior to the Open House. The email will contain a barcode for scanning into the Navy Yard.

Additional Information:
BNYDC will continue to review and evaluate safety protocols as needed for this event. At this time, face masks are highly recommended but will not be required. The Yard reserves the right to change this policy, and as such, it is advised that all visitors bring a face mask.

BNYDC expects visitors to respect each other’s personal decisions regarding face masks and to respect individual studios and factories that request face masks be worn for entry. These spaces will have a “face mask required” sign on their doors; however, visitors should also be prepared to apply a face mask if a business owner requests it.

It is further expected that all visitors will respect the face mask requests of business owners or BNYDC staff without delay or complaint.

Smoking is only permitted in outdoor areas at least 100 feet from all building entrances and not allowed indoors or on intra-Yard shuttle buses. Smoking is also not permitted in designated seating areas or areas where family games and activities are set up.

This experience is offered during OHNY Weekend as a part of Factory Friday, a series spotlighting makers and manufacturers to give New Yorkers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at local production. Factory Friday is presented in partnership with Made in NYC.
