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 126 of 2021 (Parking Structures)
This law mandates periodic assessment of all parking structures every six years to ensure they’re maintained in a safe condition. Learn more at NYCLocalLaw126.com

Local Law 11 of 1998 (Facades)
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 LocalLaw11.com

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

A Crack Team
Remediation of cracks and spalls in masonry and concrete is a key part of our practice. While we endorse immediate repair of all observed deficiencies, we’re intrigued by this artist’s approach to less serious conditions (while they await repair, of course).

An Ironclad Restoration: 31 Greene Street
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe said, “God is in the details.” SUPERSTRUCTURES’ restoration of 31 Greene Street (George W. DaCunha, 1876) in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District demonstrates how attention to restoration details at almost one hundred discrete locations creates a unified standout.

Pyramid Scheme
Plans to “restore” Giza’s pyramid of Menkaure by recladding its facade with granite blocks have stirred up a monumental debate. The available evidence, including original stones remaining at the base of the pyramid, indicates that the original “design intent” included polished Aswan granite cladding. But should the pyramid be reclad? The question is a redux of the dilemma constantly facing preservationists.
