Klein & Hoffman was retained to perform the design and administration of the exterior façades, which included a limited investigation of the condition of the façades to determine an appropriate scope of work. After the investigation and preparation of construction documents, the work performed included stabilization and restoration of exterior limestone, terra cotta and brick. Restoration of the original steel windows and cast iron ornament on the lobby level was led by HPA with our input. The desire to maintain as much of the original material as possible and keep costs and construction period low led to innovative repair solutions, particularly related to areas of terra cotta ornament on the south façade.
