Cultural Education Center and Grand Stair at Empire State Plaza

The Grand Stair is the processional entrance to the Cultural Education Center from the Empire State Plaza and serves as seating during plaza events. SGH evaluated long-term water leaks under the staircase and designed repairs. Following our work at the plaza, SGH investigated bowing of the marble wall panels and issues related to anchorage of the panels at the Cultural Education Center.
