Spring Street Salt Shed


HAKS is providing special inspections and monitoring services to the New York City Department of Design and Construction for the Spring Street Salt Shed in Manhattan.   Rising nearly 70 feet along the Hudson River at the intersection of Canal and West Street, this highly visible structure will house 4,000 tons of salt for the New York City Department of Sanitation. The salt shed’s crystalline, faceted planes enliven the reinforced concrete enclosure.  It tapers toward the bottom to allow more pedestrian space.  The salt shed’s solid, crystalline form acts as a counterpoint to the diaphanous, scrim-like façade of the Manhattan 1/2/5 Garage directly across Spring Street to the north.

HAKS is providing concrete field, rebar, pile, soils, structural steel, structural bolting, flood zone, mechanical and energy code compliance inspections for this $20 million project.  Our services are required to ensure that field installations are adequately performed in accordance with contract specifications.  New York City building codes require these services to be performed by third-party agencies registered with and meeting all requirements of the New York City Department of Buildings.  As such, HAKS monitors, advises, directs and reports on the actual field installations prior to and/or as they occur.
