Work on Hannaford’s Historic USPS Building

SSRG is currently performing restorations on the historic Cincinnati Post Office at 1623 Dalton Ave. Built in 1933 by the famed architecture Samuel Hannaford & Sons, the same firm that gave us both City and Music Hall; the Post Office has been a part of the city’s rich history for nearly a century. This facility serves as the Cincinnati Processing and Distribution Center and handles mail for 34 counties in Ohio, 12 counties, in Kentucky, and 5 in Indiana.

 

The Art Deco building with its bold stone façade is being meticulously restored on the north, west, and south elevations. Exposure to the elements has compromised the 3’ x 5’ Berea sandstone panels requiring full tear down and replacement in some locations, with patching in others. HGC Construction is replacing the original steel windows in their entirety with historic replicas made from aluminum to mimic the original profiles. Just as the United States Postal Service has delivered quality service to its customers for decades, SSRG alongside the HGC Group of Companies is hoping to deliver a first class restoration to this historic icon.
