Professional Services for Professional Clients

The SCA, NYCHA, DCAS, DDC, HHC, PANY&NJ, OGS, DASNY, and US GSA. What do all these acronyms* have in common? They all represent large agencies with multiple facilities, millions of square feet, and billions of dollars of value under their watch.

Currently, SUPERSTRUCTURES has active projects for nearly all of these owners. They’ve all entrusted us for professional architecture and engineering services to restore and renew these assets—not just for a single project, but again and again in ongoing relationships.

All of these organizations have facilities in New York City and comply with the City’s Facade Inspection & Safety Program (FISP). To assure public safety and to preserve asset value, their facades and roofs must be maintained safe and water tight. They retain us to investigate problems, develop solutions, prepare construction documents, and administer construction.

Whereas construction contracts are generally awarded to the lowest bidder, assignments of professional services are based on qualifications, not cost. The value we offer is a well-executed project that’s completed on time, on budget, and for a fair price.

Agency clients also value our well-crafted construction documents, which have been called “the Gold Standard” and “by far the best in the industry.” They help avoid costly change orders and delays. All of these agencies are professional clients with architects, engineers, and construction professionals on their selection committees who recognize the professionalism inherent to our services.
