“I visited ESI for the first time when I was studying at FIT with my exhibit design class. I liked ESI Design straight away. When we left the office, I looked at my teacher and said: I want to work here. 5 years later, when I joined the company, she reminded me of that moment.”

“Installing the media and software at Wells Fargo Center, Denver, CO.”

“It's impossible to narrow it down to one moment.”

“I recently helped make a rat cart for a game we designed for Figment.”

“Working on 745 Atlantic Avenue where it took me a month to work on the map design!”

“When the whole company took the day off and we went to watch the Yankees play.”

“Eating a Chinese feast with our partners at the end of a huge install. It was a pretty epic feeling working with a great team to accomplish a great project."

“Installing the facade lights mockup on the roof of the Columbia Center and barbecuing salmon 700 feet in the sky over Seattle.”

“Meeting with Mormon Elders in Salt Lake City with Steve Briganti when working on Ellis Island.”


To celebrate the opening of the new #StatueOfLibertyMuseum, we’re highlighting some of the stories of the talented people who worked on the project. Up next, meet Douglas Phelps (@dougphelps44), President of @PhelpsConstrGrp, who lead the construction of the museum structure. Douglas considers the museum to be his “greatest achievement,” and is excited that visitors now have the opportunity to learn about the Statue’s history and what it represents.
Head to the link in our bio to read about his experience working on the museum.
