Thanks to Getzner and the elastic suspension of the track, the New York City subway system runs on quiet soles. The largest full-surface foundation support system in the USA to date was installed in a public school in Queens, New York, which was built near the railroad. Getzner solutions are used in the USA in the construction, railway and industrial sectors. One of the most prestigious reference projects is the 130 m high skyscraper, the "Rushmore Building" in New York City, from which two floors were completely decoupled from the rest of the building in terms of vibration control. The living and working quality of buildings exposed to noise and vibrations is considerably improved by the vibration protection.
The winners of the five categories, for which a total of twelve nominees are available, will be announced on February 20.
