Laland Baptiste’s Senior Project Manager provided construction management services for the Green Infrastructure Program. This program involved the comprehensive construction management of thousands of right-of-way bioswales in Brooklyn, New York. The bioswales featured deep pockets of gravel serving as small, local recharge basins with scuppers in the street curb allowing storm water to flow through the bioswale, with excess water outletting to adjacent catch basins. Each bioswale was heavily planted with adapted plant materials to filter and utilize the stormwater.
