AECOM joint venture wins Port Authority contract

Posted on December 13, 2011

A joint venture between AECOM Technology Corp., its Tishman Construction arm and STV was awarded a $19-million contract by the Moynihan Station Development Corp. in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Under the contract, the joint venture will provide construction management services and rail expertise for the first phase of Moynihan Station construction in Manhattan. The contract scope includes design reviews, complex construction staging, coordination between three operating railroads, construction supervision of platform ventilation work, pedestrian concourse improvements and facility planning.

The project's first phase includes the expansion and enhancement of the 33rd Street Connector between Penn Station and the West End Concourse, which lies under the grand staircase of the Farley Post Office building on Eighth Avenue; the extension and widening of the West End Concourse to serve nine of Penn Station's 11 platforms; new vertical access points and passenger circulation space; and entrances into the West End Concourse through the 31st and 33rd Street corners of the Farley building.

AECOM's aggregate fee, including its Tishman Construction operation, is approximately $11 million. Phase 1 is slated for completion during 2016.
