Project Overview

515 Madison Avenue, also known as the DuMont Building, is a 532-foot high, 42-story building at 53rd Street and Madison Avenue in Manhattan’s Plaza District. The building was built in Art Deco and neo-Gothic style by John H. Carpenter in 1932.

After completing a FISP inspection, our team assessed the exterior façade, which is cladded with cast iron, terra-cotta and white glazed brick. This project required special mobilization, protection and logistics in order to address the decorative elements of this tall structure. Our team successfully performed structural steel repairs and completed a parapet wall replacement, brick and decorative terra-cotta replacement.
