Rehabilitation of Stillwell Avenue Terminal
As managing partner in a joint venture, TYLin served as Consultant Construction Manager (CCM) for the comprehensive rehabilitation of the Stillwell Avenue Terminal in Brooklyn, New York.
Left under four to five feet of seawater 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 and bus crew quarters, and the Police District 34 Station House.
TYLin administered the contract and oversaw close coordination with New York City Transit design and field engineers and department user groups, utilities such as Con Edison and Verizon, and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection Police.
The rehabilitation included architectural, mechanical, electrical, communication, instrumentation and controls, structural, and utility design and overview.
- TYLin’s CCM team conducted a complete review of the contract documents and made recommendations to improve constructability.
- TYLin 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.
- The project replaced floor and wall tiles, doors, bathroom facilities, water meters, fire pumps, fire-stopping, water-stopping, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) units, Con Edison service of current transformer (CT) cabinet and main service feeders, and power distribution panels.
