CIVIQ Smartscapes' role in LinkNYC is bringing together the technology and components into a structure that's tough enough to survive on the streets of New York, whilst still being attractive and appealing. Our structures go through rigorous testing to make sure they're reliable through the harsh conditions of the urban environment and extreme weather.
