FAÇADE:

New York Public Library

Project Description:

Platinum was engaged on this multi-phased, building repositioning project for AECOM Tishman, to clean and restore the 100 year old limestone façade of the Stavros Nicharos Foundation branch of the New York Public Library located in Midtown Manhattan. Platinum remediated the façade by carefully selecting cleaning methods and agents strong enough to remove the heavy accumulations of dirt and grime while safe enough to protect the delicate historical elements of the building. The cleaning was followed by evaluations and repair work including pointing, cast iron and copper restoration, stucco and brick repairs, as well as the application of KEIM mineral coating over this historic façade.

375 Park

Project Description:

Platinum was chosen to meticulously clean the exterior façade of the Seagram Building, an iconic landmark building located at 375 Park Avenue. Over a twelve-month period, Platinum worked to preserve the muntz metal on all four elevations of the building, including the podium. The statuary bronze façade elements, including the spandrel wall panels and adjoining vertical rails, were cleaned and oiled utilizing specific products and procedures approved by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Platinum’s experience in historic restoration is essential for dealing with the sensitivity and complexities that arise when restoring aesthetics and architectural qualities of landmark properties.

1 Penn Plaza

Project Description:

Platinum is currently in the process of remediating the spandrel glass and exterior of 1 Penn Plaza’s monolithic glass curtain wall. Platinum’s team of experts are polishing and restoring all vision and spandrel glass utilizing cerium oxide polishing powder, variable speed hand polishers, and Clear-Fusion Pro, which is an advanced glass coating applied to protect the glass from contaminants and scratches for years to come. In addition, Platinum is raking out and re-caulking all metal to metal, metal to glass, and all opened joints, and replacing the sealant with Dow Corning 795. The exterior aluminum panels, window frames, mullions, coping, and vertical columns are also being primed, sanded, masked and painted using PPG Coraflon Coating designed to provide durable protection to help aid against further corrosion to the metal and result in a crisp, clean façade.

620 F St NW

Project Description:

For the anodized aluminum mullions of all four elevations, Platinum first scrubbed using an acrylic scrubbing pad, detergent, and water to remove dirt, grime and oxidation. The mullions were then sealed using a wipe-on metal sealer. Access was via a combination of suspended scaffolding, lifts and rope descent control devices. For the stainless-steel trim pieces and mullions on all four elevations, Platinum thoroughly chemically removed all previous coatings, cleaned the bare metal surfaces to remove rust, dirt and oxidation and applied an oxidation inhibiting lacquer coating.

Macy’s San Francisco

Project Description:

Platinum was hired by Macy’s in San Francisco to clean the exterior of the building from dirt, grime, stains and pollutants. Platinum’s team of experts selected the most appropriate cleaning method to restore the building in a cost and time efficient manner and delivered the highest level of quality and professionalism to ensure that our client’s needs were met. Platinum stripped and painted all of the windowsills, cut out and raked existing sealant, installed backer rod and re-caulked all open joints utilizing DOWSIL 123 Silicone Seal and DOWSIL 795 Silicone Sealant. The verde green marble on the face of the building was diamondized, clean and honed using various degrees of diamond grit pads and polished.

1 Liberty Plaza

Project Description:

After a rigorous procurement process and successfully providing sample mock-ups, Platinum was engaged to paint and caulk the exterior façade of this 54-story steel skyscraper as part of a major exterior facelift. Over a three-year period, Platinum workers stripped by hand the existing coatings to base metal, primed, spray painted and applied a clear coat to the exterior columns, panels and window bays. In addition, Platinum workers caulked the building after the painting was completed. The initial phase employed eight scaffolds working on the South and West elevations and then were moved to the North and East elevations. The Matthews painting system is VOC compliant and exceeds the toughest compliance regulations in the country.

477 Madison Avenue

Project Description:

Platinum’s team of experts were contracted to restore the facade of 477 Madison, a 24-story office tower located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. The project consisted of pressure washing the glazed white brick on all four elevations, including setbacks, parapet walls and coping. A KEIM biodegradable cleaner was used to remove tough contaminants and damaging pollutants, all which contribute to the deterioration of facades. The exterior was then coated with a two-part KEIM highly specialized mineral system to give the building a new distinguished appearance.

120 Broadway

Project Description:

Platinum is proud to have been involved in the transformation of 120 Broadway, a landmark building located in Lower Manhattan.
