New York City's most prominent firm dedicated to the restoration and renewal of
facades, curtain walls, roofs, plazas, parking structures, and infrastructure

We work on more exterior restoration projects than any other firm in New York City

Since our founding in 1981, we’ve successfully completed thousands of restoration projects for the region’s most prestigious and demanding clients, including some of the most prominent and historically significant structures in the city.

In the interest of public safety, the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) has established three laws related to the inspection of facades, parking structures, and retaining walls within the five boroughs:

Local Law 11 of 1998
Also known as the Facade Inspection & Safety Program (FISP), this law addresses the condition of exterior walls of buildings taller than six stories. Learn more at

Local Law 126 of 2021
This law mandates periodic assessment of all parking structures every six years to ensure they’re maintained in a safe condition. Learn more at

Local Law 37 of 2008
Similar to FISP, retaining walls must be inspected and required maintenance performed every five years.

Pushing the (Building) Envelope
The International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC) retired the term envelope in favor of enclosure to describe a building’s array of exterior surfaces. Sure, enclosure might be a more intuitive way to describe a building’s exterior and primary function. But we’re sticking with envelope for a few reasons.

Tempus Fugit
Tempus Fugit…Latin for “time flies.” For New York City, that means that a growing number of its buildings are already a century old (or more). When SUPERSTRUCTURES started out in 1981, we impressed clients by saying, “some of the buildings we work on are almost 100 years old” (constructed in the 1880s). But at that time, such structures were few and far between.
