USPS Newark Main Post Office and Federal Courts

Facility Renovations

Newark, NJ

PROJECT SUMMARY

The Newark Main Post Office building not only accommodates the retail postal facility but also serves as a mail processing and distribution center. The upper floors house several federal courts and associated judges' offices.

Maintenance of operations is critical to the USPS for all facilities; all alterations are required to be completed in occupied and operated facilities. In this case, the federal courts remained in session during the replacement of the roofing system. Detailed phasing and close coordination was required. Over the past 20 years, Crane has provided design and construction phase services for the following renovations at this facility:

built-up roof replacement

new heavy duty asphalt plank flooring system

replacement/restoration of exterior doors and frames

toilet room upgrades

elevator fire alarm and recall upgrade

3rd and 4th floor lighting survey

electrical switchgear maintenance survey

postmaster's office relocation

new security booth

HVac survey

structural survey

emergency generator installation
