      The State of International Affairs

       

      SUPERSTRUCTURES is conducting a restoration of the roof and facade of Columbia University’s International Affairs Building (IAB), designed by Harrison & Abramovitz and built in 1970. Believe it or not, International Style and Brutalist buildings of the IAB’s era are now at least 50 years old and, just like people, most buildings of this vintage need some regular, proactive maintenance.

      An example of our holistic approach to maintaining building envelopes, the current project includes replacement of the IAB’s penthouse and stair tower roofs, roof railing replacement, and repair of spalled concrete and deteriorated steel reinforcement on the facade. Our restoration design isn’t “one size fits all.” Through our extensive expertise in concrete repair, it’s tailored to the building’s specific facade assembly and degree of deterioration.

      We’re honored to continue our long-standing relationship with Columbia University, restoring and preserving several buildings across its campus—from the landmarked interiors of Low Library to the modern concrete masses of the IAB.
