HGC was brought in as the expert in historic window replacements for the comprehensive facade restoration to the USPS Cincinnati headquarters.

Built in 1933 by the famed architecture firm Samuel Hannaford & Sons (the same that gave Cincinnati both City and Music Hall), the Cincinnati Post Office on Dalton Avenue has been a part of the city’s rich history for nearly a century. The Art Deco-style building with a bold stone façade was recently meticulously restored on the north, west, and south elevations for a total of approximately 225,000 SF. Each of those facades features an expanse of windows. Our teams installed 1,367 new windows on 267 openings.

The windows were replaced with custom-made, historically accurate aluminum replicas, honoring the aesthetic legacy of the building while preparing it to last for years to come. Installing the 1,367 windows took the crew approximately four months, and the project cost totaled $2.4 million.

This facility serves as the Cincinnati Processing and Distribution Center and handles mail for 51 counties: 34 in Ohio, 12 in Kentucky, and 5 in Indiana. All replacements were performed
while this bustling center maintained daily operations.
