Accelerated Water Main Replacements and Sewer Rehabilitation and Replacements
TYLin provided Resident Engineering Inspection services for water main replacements and sewer rehabilitation and replacements in the Manhattan borough of New York, New York.
Construction work for the New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) project included installing distribution water mains to improve the city’s water distribution system and replacing very old existing water mains that required the transfer of water services to the new water main.
The project also replaced existing nonfunctioning or defective fire hydrants and gate valves, and rehabilitated or replaced existing sewers as required.
TYLin provided a Resident Engineer, Office Engineer, and an Inspector to oversee the construction and perform the coordination, management, and administration from the pre-construction phase to the close-out phase of the project.
Services included monitoring the contractor’s daily work activities for conformance to contract specifications and drawings. TYLin was also required to produce and maintain accurate project records.
- The estimated total water main replacement measured 22,935 linear feet.
- TYLin provided complex maintenance and protection of traffic and maintenance of service plans.
- Construction in the vicinity of New York City Transit facilities, such as subway roofs and emergency exits, was carefully planned to avoid service disruptions.
