The Woolworth Tower Residences won this year’s Excellence in Structural Engineering award from the Structural Engineers Association of New York in the category of Forensic Analysis / Renovation / Retrofit / Rehabilitation of Structures.

The innovative and elegant early skyscraper completed in 1913, endures today as an iconic form on the New York City skyline – the tallest building in the world until 1930.Our team renovated, restored and redeveloped the upper 30-story “tower” to luxury condominiums, while the lower 28 floors of offices remained occupied throughout reconstruction.A high level of collaboration between the design and construction teams ensured this project was successful. All materials were hoisted within the building – no exterior crane! Where removals and reinforcing was necessary to create modern apartments, the building’s stiffness was maintained to assure no change to the support conditions of the envelope.
