T.Y. Lin International (TYLI), as managing partner in a joint venture, served as Consultant Construction Manager (CCM) for New York City Transit (NYCT) for the comprehensive rehabilitation of Stillwell Avenue Terminal in Brooklyn, New York.

The terminal was heavily damaged by the tidal surge during Superstorm Sandy. The large, multiuse facility included the consolidated employee facility, station structures and lighting workshops, a utility building, signal crew quarters, bus crew quarters, and the Police District 34 Station House, all of which were under four to five feet of seawater.

The rehabilitation included architectural, mechanical, and electrical, communication, instrumentation and controls, structural, and utility design and overview. The scope of work involved replacement of floor and wall tiles; painting; fire pumps; fire stopping; water stopping; doors; water meters; toilets; heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) units; electrical heaters; Con Edison service of current transformer (CT) cabinet and main service feeders; power distribution panels; progress payments; as-built drawings; and close-out documents.

Project Highlights:

  • TYLI administered the contract and oversaw coordination with NYCT design and field engineers, NYCT department user groups, Con Edison and Verizon, and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection Police.
  • The CCM team conducted a complete review of the contract documents and made recommendations to improve constructability.
  • The team helped contractors prepare the quality work plans, safe work plans, submissions, operation and maintenance (O&M) manuals, critical path method (CPM) scheduling, and payment schedule.
