Project Details

For the first phase of the project, MFS is to conduct a thorough review of all existing data, record civil & structural drawings, reports and documentation provided by the NYCEDC. Upon completion of the crawlspace, foundation and subsurface investigation, MFS is to provide a comprehensive final report with detailed findings, and recommendations to correct the deficiencies. MFS provided Topographical and Utility Surveys to locate physical features and surface utilities. Furthermore, MFS completed a CCTV and sewer cleaning and inspections of the sanitary sewer lines at the site. Based on the comprehensive final report with detailed findings, documentation and recommendations, MFS is to assist the Design Team to provide engineering design input to produce the final design for phase two of the project. The MFS Civil Team considered the conditions that are encountered at the site and made recommendations on how the proposed site design will be impacted. MFS is to prepare preliminary and final drawing documentation as well as technical specifications for the project. MFS was brought into the design team in part because of our understanding of NYCEDC standards and deliverables from multiple previous projects, and our extensive experience with public projects in the New York City Metropolitan area.
