Nearing the completion of a six-year renovation of the historic Thurgood Marshall U.S. Courthouse at 40 Foley Square, Platinum was engaged to restore the white, Tennessee and green marble floors.
Over a six-month period, Platinum’s workers stripped off years of built up floor finish, cleaned and machine honed all the marble hallways and elevator lobbies throughout the building (30 floors) to bring the floors back to its former grandeur.
Project Details: Marble Restoration
320 Park Avenue was originally designed by Emery Roth & Sons in 1960 and is now the headquarters to one of largest mutual life insurance companies.
In 1995, a Swanke Hayden Connell-led redesign expanded the 35-story tower’s square footage to 730,000 square feet. Over ten years ago, Platinum craftsmen restored the marble finishes throughout the main floor building lobby and continue to maintain the lobby floors on a nightly basis with a permanently assigned staff.

By utilizing the building’s window cleaning scaffold, Platinum workers removed all the dirt and staining caused by environmental pollutants on all of the exterior stainless steel window frames on the three elevations of the building. A sealer was applied to protect and enhance the appearance of the metal. All workers were trained on the operation of the window cleaning scaffold system prior to the commencement of the work.
