A 2008 overclad of a prewar building, 1775 Avenue of the Americas addressed the challenges posed by a neglected façade.  Vidaris provided a new exterior wall that protected damaged masonry and mitigated any potential hazardousness.  The new overclad also used an engineered, thermally-improved curtain wall system that contributed to energy savings and helped bring the structure from a Class B to a Class A office building status.
