This project was part of the Brookfield Office Properties’ 9th Ave overbuild to install a platform over the 9th Ave rail system with a series of precast bridge structures. Posillico installed the south and track level foundations for the precast capping structure. The scope included the installation of a massive caisson supported concrete abutment, erection of a steel capping beam along existing railroad facilities, and the excavation and installation of track level foundations to support a work platform for the precast cap installation.
WHAT MADE THIS JOB COMPLEX
This project was part of a large and complex goal of literally building Manhattan real estate. The amount of coordination required with Amtrak, LIRR, NYCDOB, DOT, and other contractors on-site required a proactive and professional staff who could stay ahead of a very intense schedule.
HOW POSILLICO SOLVED IT
Posillico was able to work through this project with our team of experts. By combining our efforts from Posillico Civil, Inc. and Posillico Drilling, Inc. we put some of the best heavy construction minds in the New York metropolitan area to work on creating a solid foundation for a project that will help Manhattan grow even stronger.
