195 Broadway - Glass Wall System Lobby Renovations

195 Broadway Finished Lobby_From W&W Glass Have Permission (2).png
Project Overview: 
This historic 29-story building, built by AT&T in 1916, is the site of the first transcontinental telephone call, intercity picturephone call, and the transatlantic telephone call. Renovations to the lobby included the fabrication and installation of a new 30 foot tall interior glass demising wall system. The glass wall system includes an “L” shaped entry vestibule (with legs of approximately 10 and 40 feet) and two (2) parallel walls that stretch across the length of the lobby. The gravity load is supported by the lobby floor; while the system’s lateral stability is provided by the glass fins and the lateral restraints at the ceiling.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren performed preliminary and final engineering design for custom patch fittings; structural glass, including glass fins; connection of the glass fin to the lobby floor; steel support framing above and below the lobby ceiling, to support the glass wall system; attachment of the doors to glass wall system; and retail display alcoves and public access doors.

NYSDOT Bundled Bridges Design-Build

NYSDOT_Region 8 Bundled Bridges.jpg
Project Overview: 
McLaren in association with ECCO III Enterprises was awarded the $47 million New York State Department of Transportation Design-Build Contract 3 Project for six (6) bridges in Region 8 (Westchester and Orange Counties). The project includes one bridge rehabilitation, one superstructure replacement, four full replacements on existing alignment as well as highway approach work where required.
McLaren's Role: 
As part of this Design Build contract, McLaren is responsible for the overall engineering design and construction support services of six (6) bridges located in New York’s Orange and Westchester Counties. Several of the bridges are located in high-volume corridors where maintenance and protection of traffic and congestion management were of chief concern. The overall goal to the Project involved reducing traffic impacts to the greatest extent possible.

Mechanicsville Volunteer Fire Department Station 2

Mechanicsville Fire Department (4).JPG
Project Overview: 
The extensive renovation and expansion of the Mechanicsville Volunteer Fire Department station included approximately 31,500 square feet of new construction on the existing five (5) acre property. The project consisted of demolishing the majority of the existing fire station, with the exception of the existing social hall and the parking lot(s) to the north of the site. The new building includes an office, training space, day room, kitchen, bunk rooms, and apparatus bays. New parking areas were added on the rear, front, and south sides. Since public water and sanitary sewer did not exist, the renovated facility now uses the existing water well and sanitary septic system on the property.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided site planning and layout, site grading and stormwater management design, erosion and sediment control, utility design (storm, sanitary, and water), paving design, landscape design, and preparation of all required land development plans. Stormwater Management was designed using MDE Environmental Site Design guidelines. Environmental plans, including Forest Stand Delineation and Forest Conversation Plans, were prepared in accordance with local and state regulatory requirements. McLaren also provided plan processing, permitting, and construction administration services.

Domino Sugar Refinery Bulkhead/Waterfront Platform Reconstruction

Domino Sugar Construction 2016-06-03 (2).JPG
Project Overview: 
The former historic Domino Sugar Refinery site is being redeveloped into several high-rise buildings for both residential and commercial space as well as the addition of five (5) acres of green open space. The existing gantry cranes, syrup silos and refinery building will be rehabilitated and integrated into the overall program in order to preserve the historical industrial heritage of the Williamsburg community.
McLaren's Role: 
Upon review and analysis, it was determined that the demolition and reconstruction of the entire platform was required but sections of the existing bulkhead could be repaired. McLaren used the foundation of the existing bulkhead, that sits on-top of the existing seawall foundation, saving the client a 1/3 of the cost. The new platform designed by McLaren will support a future public park that will be incorporated into the planned upland development. Upon completion of the inspection Phases, McLaren performed a detailed assessment of the current conditions as it relates to the future construction. Design alternatives were studied in order to provide all information for the reconstruction of the entire bulkhead as opposed to rehabilitation.
