HAKS, in joint venture, provided on-call construction management services to the New York City Department of Environmental Protection for miscellaneous projects in the downstate New York area. Our services included constructability reviews, installation and operation of chlorination/dechlorination facilities, fire alarm systems, sludge dewatering facilities, mechanical/electrical work, and instrumentation at water pollution control plants in the North area (Hunts Point, Red Hook, Newtown Creek, Bowery Bay, Tallman  Island, Wards Island and North River Plant and pumping stations) and the South area (Owls Head, Oakwood Beach, Coney Island, 26th Ward, Rockaway and Port Richmond plants and pumping stations).

Assignments included a post-bid constructability review of the $26 million Bronx River floatables control facilities in the Bronx; pre-bid constructability review of a $3 million contract to replace part of a damaged concrete perimeter sea wall at the Red Hook WPCP in Brooklyn; $2.5 million fire alarm system removal and upgrade replacement at the Red Hook plant; $10 million Barretto Point site remediation to remove and replace contaminated soil near the Hunts Point WPCP in the Bronx; and $12 million sludge dewatering facilities improvements at eight water pollution control plants throughout the city.

Other construction management work included overseeing installation and commissioning of the chlorination equipment; coordinating fire alarm system installations with the New York City Fire Department; and establishing a master project schedule to monitor all activities and identify scheduling delays.
