U.S. Post Office & Courthouse

This 575,000 sq. ft. project involved historic preservation and adaptive re-use of the General Post Office in Brooklyn as a Federal Post Office and Courthouse. The interior of the existing 11-story US General Post Office Building (two buildings: one constructed in 1892; one in 1933) was renovated, and the interior courtyard of the 1933 building received an 85,000 sq. ft. infill addition to provide a new mezzanine, new courtrooms for the U. S. Bankruptcy Courts, and 40,000 sq. ft for the U.S. Attorney’s office. The U. S. Postal Service occupies the renovated space.

VDA provided vertical transportation consulting services for fourteen (14) elevators, four (4) handicap lifts and three (3) document handling systems.
