PBM is proud to have been part of the team selected by New York Landmarks Conservancy winners of the prestigious Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award for our work on the James A. Farley Building. This annual award, which is considered the Conservancy’s highest honor, is named to those being recognized for outstanding preservation work to buildings, landmarks, streetscapes and other rich pieces around New York City.
This particular project aimed to bring restoration to the Farley building which is a part of the National Register of Historic Places as well as a New York City Landmark (designated in 1966). This stunning Corinthian-inspired building once acted as New York City’s main United States Postal Service (USPS) branch.
As a part of the many pieces of this complex undertaking, our team and partners worked to restore the building’s marble columns, pilasters, wainscoting, trim, archways, and flooring of the full-block, double-height lobby. Our own Barry Maher, PBM VP/COO, and David Butler, Metal & Marble VP, were an integral part of this project, bringing leadership and expertise from our team.
The PBM team would like to give special thanks and recognition to our partners in this venture, including:
Building Conservation Associates, Inc
We would also like to congratulate the other award recipients of the evening, and thank them for their outstanding efforts in beautifying and restoring some of the rich archival pieces throughout New York City.
