Testing+Evaluation Projects and Assignments
New York, NY
Designed by Emery Roth in 1929, The Beresford remains one of the most prominent elements of Central Park West's distinctive skyline. The massive apartment house was executed in brick, with limestone and terra cotta trim, and ornamented with sculpture derived from the late Renaissance. The Beresford is designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. The program involved terra cotta repair, masonry cleaning and restoration, and ageing contemporary, non-matching elements to emulate the historic masonry. SUPERSTRUCTURES provided investigation, design, and construction administration services.
