Hurricane Sandy Restoration – Parkwide

Hurricane Sandy Restoration – Parkwide

Client: Hudson River Park Trust

In the aftermath of devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, Laland Baptiste’s Senior Project Manager provided design/build services to the Hudson River Park Trust for a parkwide restoration project. We assembled and managed a wide-ranging team of engineers and construction managers to undertake the reconstruction of the electrical and mechanical infrastructure throughout the 5-mile-long park, Pier 40 (20-acre footprint), and nine park buildings. All the critical equipment was elevated and otherwise protected to mitigate future flood damage.

The design/build work included:

  • Damage assessment
  • Scope of work development
  • Prioritization
  • Engineering
  • Bidding
  • Contracting
  • Permitting
  • Construction supervision and commissioning of projects elements
  • Primary and distribution wiring
  • Lighting throughout the park
  • Electrical panels, switch gear and HVAC equipment in nine park buildings
  • Pier 40 electrical substation (6,000 amps)
  • Pier 40 Fire suppression pumps, controls, and fire alarm.
