A recent article in the Architect’s Newspaper characterizes the restoration of the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House as a recipient of federally funded “green” improvements.
As the architects and engineers selected by the United States General Services Administration (GSA) for the project, we see it as an example of our maxim that “the greenest building is the one that already exists.” Embodied carbon efficiency is inherent to SUPERSTRUCTURES’ “do no harm” restoration practice.
The $100 million, top-to-bottom restoration of the building’s envelope includes remediation of water infiltration in the basements and sidewalk vaults as well as restoration of masonry, windows, skylights, and the rotunda murals.
We’re grateful for this chance to preserve this National Historic Landmark, just steps from our Wall Street office. It also attests to our strong track record of winning and executing complex projects for exacting agencies such as the GSA.
