SURFACE DESIGN engaged in a full scope of fa├žade restoration services of this Flatiron District Landmark, providing assessment of the existing masonry which has undergone various alterations. In some areas these changes left the building without its original cornice and decorative terra cotta capitals at the top of the 3 story base. We prepared full scope construction documents and performed shop inspection for replacement glass fiber reinforced concrete units and site observation of all masonry work. We worked with the Architect of Record on building envelope issues with regard to the new fiberglass cornice (FRP), storefront alterations and architectural lighting. Work was completed in early spring 2015 in time for the new commercial tenant opening.
