Hill International was awarded a task order contract by New York City Transit to provide construction management services in connection with the design and construction of the new Clifton Car Repair Shop in Staten Island, N.Y. The four-year task order has an estimated value to Hill of approximately $9 million.
Hill will manage and provide construction administration and daily oversight during the demolition and construction phases of the Clifton Car Repair Shop, which was damaged during 2012's Superstorm Sandy. The project consists of the demolition of the existing buildings, construction of a new facility and landscaping and the necessary coordination between the design-builder and in-house forces to perform the necessary outdoor track work. The new three-story railcar repair shop will have a total built-up area of approximately 86,000 square feet.
"We are honored to be part of the Superstorm Sandy reconstruction projects for New York City Transit," said John Milano, PE, sr. VP, northeast regional manager, for Hill's Project Management Group. "These improvement projects will help mitigate the city's infrastructure risk with hurricane resilient facilities."
