SUPERSTRUCTURES Engineers + Architects

At SUPERSTRUCTURES, we don’t fill positions—we build careers. We’re seeking Structural Engineers and Project Architects with 5+ years of experience and an interest in restoration of building skin and skeleton.


We are a prolific, award-winning E/A firm dedicated to the preservation and renewal of NYC’s buildings and infrastructure.

We work on significant and challenging projects, including courthouses, schools, universities, churches, housing, and hospitals, and many of New York's most storied landmarks for the region’s premier public, corporate, and residential clients.

Our work embraces all components of the building envelope and underlying structure—facades, roofs, windows, and plazas—and the full complement of materials, from historic terra-cotta to high-performance curtain walls.

We consistently produce construction documents that have been called the “Gold Standard” by our clients.

We’re innovators, continually leveraging the latest tools and technology to drive restoration practice into the 21st century.

About You

You are a Structural or Civil Engineer with 4 -5 years’ experience in exterior restoration, or a closely related discipline.

You have the ability to direct a team that produces construction documents that live up to our industry-leading standard.

Talent, dedication, and passion for building restoration is a must, and we’ll help you build on that foundation.

About the Position

You’ll direct a team of 2 - 4 on multiple, simultaneous projects from inception through completion: investigation, construction documents, bid negotiation, and construction administration, including primary client contact. You'll take on greater responsibility as you gain experience.

You’ll work within a “studio” that offers the dual advantages of a small office environment coupled with access to the centralized resources of a larger firm.

You'll be supported by some of the most sophisticated technology in the profession, including proprietary computer systems and software, advanced photography, reality capture, and image processing, artificial intelligence, digital asset management, and state-of-the-art, non-destructive diagnostic equipment and techniques.
