Borough of Manhattan Community College (CUNY) Roof Reconstruction

Client: Borough of Manhattan Community College – CUNY

Laland Baptiste provided office engineering services for the Borough of Manhattan Community College (CUNY) Roof Reconstruction Project. CUNY’s main campus sits upon 4.28 acres of land in a building that was designed with the Hudson River harbor in mind (shaped like a ship with its helm pointed to sea). Spanning four blocks from Chambers Street to North Moore Street, it is equivalent to the Empire State Building lying on its side. The main campus is the hub of the college.

The roof reconstruction for the college included:

  • Removal and Replacement of the existing roofing system
  • Drain Replacement
  • Structural Steel Installation
  • Flashing Replacement
  • Installation of Parapet Railings

For this project, Laland Baptiste provided engineering services that included site representation and inspections. This involved developing processes to ensure the project scope was achieved, monitoring the overall project budget, and overseeing the bidding process, project closeout, and turnover. We attended all pre-construction and construction meetings and reviewed plans and specifications to ensure construction was proceeding as planned. We observed and inspected the construction work to document and resolve project issues on site conditions, ensure quality and safety, and maintain the project’s schedule and budget.
