Spring Street Salt Shed


HAKS provided special inspections and monitoring services to the New York City Department of Design and Construction for a Department of Sanitation salt shed rising nearly 70 feet along the Hudson River at the intersection of Canal and West Streets. This highly visible structure houses 4,000 tons of salt.  Crystalline, faceted planes enliven the reinforced concrete enclosure that tapers toward the bottom to allow more pedestrian space.  The solid crystalline form acts as a counterpoint to the diaphanous, scrim-like façade of the Manhattan 1/2/5 Garage directly across Spring Street.

We provided concrete field, rebar, pile, soils, structural steel, structural bolting, flood zone, mechanical and energy code compliance inspections for this $20 million project, recipient of the 2016 CIB Award of Merit.
