Abstract: Four recent rehabilitation projects are described. On an old concrete gravity dam, post-tensioning tendons were added to improve its resistance to sliding. The abandoned Union Station in Albany, N.Y., was refurbished to add office space for the headquarters of a banking holding company while keeping the original appearance of the lobby intact. The Forest Hill subway station in San Francisco was improved by providing access from a new elevator lobby by creating a pedestrian tunnel through a 9 ft thick arched concrete wall. In New York City, the 60 year old brick facade of the News Building is being repaired.
