As the restoration Engineer / Architect for the Consolidated Edison (ConEd) headquarters building, we’re honored to be recipients of the 2022 Project of the Year Award from the NY Chapter of the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI).
SUPERSTRUCTURES is excited to launch the sixth season of the Frost Jacking Day Tracker. "Frost jacking" is what happens when freezing temperatures cause rain or snow to turn to ice and expand cracks in a facade. As cycles of freezing and thawing accumulate, the cracks continue to grow and exterior hazardous conditions or interior water damage or leaks can occur.
In the film Moneyball, Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) has an epiphany: baseball's conventional wisdom of relying on high-profile star players is all wrong. SUPERSTRUCTURES has something fundamental in common with the film's team.
In 1992, multiple Grammy winner Vince Gill sang a country classic with the refrain “There ain’t no future in the past.” We beg to differ. Our contemporary practice includes the preservation of many of New York City’s historic buildings—irreplaceable beacons of the past.
As the old show-business quip goes, “It’s worse than dog eat dog—it’s dog doesn’t return dog’s phone calls.” SUPERSTRUCTURES is doing its part to assure that this run-around doesn’t apply to the business of architecture and engineering. We return calls and emails—whether we end up taking the job or not.
SUPERSTRUCTURES’ professional relationship is ultimately with our clients: building owners. The contractors we work with also answer to owners, so we view them as natural allies in getting our designs built as intended for the benefit of our clients.
What do exterior restoration and sushi have in common? Sushi is an art form as much as it is a cuisine, so the best sushi is made by the most expert chefs. With forty years of experience in restoring New York’s buildings and a talented team of architects and engineers, SUPERSTRUCTURES’ practice parallels the seasoned skills required to craft world-class sushi.
