Fulton Center


HAKS performed Special Inspections for New York City Transit’s Fulton Center, a $2 billion redevelopment in Lower Manhattan. Our responsibilities began with the special inspection of steel fabrication at an upstate plant where release and conformance of the material, with approved drawings, welding procedures, welder’s certifications, conformance results and other code requirements depended on the highly trained experience of HAKS' CWI and ICC welding inspectors. As material was approved, it was ready for release to the downtown Manhattan location. Inspection categories included concrete, steel, welding, bolting, masonry, soils, and fireproofing. A dozen HAKS special inspectors worked on the project on an as-needed basis, supporting the needs of the owner.

HAKS created a proprietary project management system for stakeholders that employs the processes required to ensure timely and appropriate generation, collection, distribution, storage, retrieval and ultimate disposition of project information.

Construction of the Center resumed after the project originally started in 2005 and was halted for various reasons.  The Center provides a hub to 12 different MTA subway lines and the World Trade Center PATH station, and services more than 300,000 riders per day.

The Fulton Center received LEED Silver certification, the first New York City subway station to receive such a rating.
