Manhattan's Landmark US Custom House Getting Greener-Material Repairs
Consigli Construction, the general contractor for the sustainable-materials upgrade of the below-grade “bathtub” surrounding the 501,000-sq-ft Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House in Lower Manhattan, is likely to mobilize the $68-million project next month, according to the U.S. General Services Administration, the owner of the national historic landmark. GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan announced Aug. 15, as she toured the building, that the 39-month project will use $11 million in funding from the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act.
For the bathtub and associated sidewalk and street repairs, GSA will prioritize the procurement of American-made, substantially lower-embodied-carbon concrete, steel and asphalt.
