Chrysler Building

BBB’s restoration work at The Chrysler Building helps to preserve the iconic status of one of New York City’s most beloved landmarks.

The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco landmark that has maintained its status as the world’s tallest steel-supported brick building since its construction in 1930. BBB’s work includes restoration of the main lobby, refurbishment of elevators, and conservation of the distinctive ceiling mural. BBB also developed a master plan for restoration of the exterior Nirosta steel storefronts, which was undertaken in conjunction with masonry and portal restoration at the base and entries of the building. Additionally, BBB designed a comprehensive scheme of new finishes and improvements for the public areas of the upper tenant floors, which has been implemented in coordination with ongoing building system upgrades.
