Project Details:

The scope of the project generally includes the repair and restoration of all the exterior surfaces of the building as well as the east and west viaducts. The work includes repair and restoration of the exterior limestone, granite, and brick masonry; repair and restoration of the cast iron curtain wall system and the associated window sash and glazing; restoration of the clerestory windows at the exterior of the concourse; and replacement of windows in the light courts. Other related work includes blast mitigation for street facing windows, bronze door restoration, copper repairs, concrete repairs, and thermal improvements of the restored windows.
