Haverstraw Bay County Park - September 11th Memorial

Haverstraw 9-11 Memorial.JPG
Project Overview: 
Located where the Hudson River is its widest, at nearly four miles, this 34-acre park sits on the west bank of the river, and is composed of numerous interesting and popular components. The parks September 11th Memorial, serves as a commemorative tribute to the Rockland County natives who were affected by the terrorist attacks in 2001. It was the first in the region to open in 2003.
McLaren's Role: 
The memorial encompasses a serpentine walkway, bordered by stations of text displaying a timeline of the events that occurred on September 11, 2001. Central to the memorial is a 20-foot beam from Tower Two. This part of the memorial is set in one corner with an adjacent expanse of empty space, portraying loss. This area is angled upward to lead visitors to a corner wall, 20 feet on each side, exhibiting the names of the victims who either lived in or had close ties to Rockland County. Names are displayed in a random fashion, thus encouraging visitors to recognize each individual lost. Standing before the wall, visitors will have an open view of the waters of the Hudson River. Diagonally across from the beam stand three white monoliths symbolizing continued life beyond the expanse of emptiness. A circle of benches surrounds the monument and offers a view of the adjacent living Patriot Garden. The community of Rockland County donated much of the cost of this memorial. McLaren helped design and build this wonderful attribute to the park.

Arthur Ashe Stadium Roof A/V Fit-Out

Arthur Ashe Stadium Roof AV Fit-Out2.jpg
Project Overview: 
McLaren provided engineering for the A/V fit-out for the new Arthur Ashe Stadium roof at the Billie Jean Tennis Center in Queens, New York, which hosted the 2015 U.S. Open.
McLaren's Role: 
For IC Technologies, McLaren engineered the supports for four large LED screens, each measuring 34½’ X 19½’. The screens have a very refined LED pitch for a high quality image, which required a support structure ensuring a very flat and consistent surface that has much tighter tolerances than conventional construction. During construction, McLaren’s survey team provided accurate as-built survey information to assist the LED assembly team. For Sapsis Rigging, McLaren engineered the rigging for 20 large hung audio speaker stacks, each weighing over 1000 lbs. Each speaker stack is rigged with two cables to an electric winch to allow the speakers to be lowered in for maintenance. When the speaker stack is raised to the roof, it has pins that engage receiver tubes to secure the speakers in place. The bracket was engineered to allow field adjustment of the engagement tubes in order to ensure plumb alignment of the tubes. For both projects, McLaren worked with these specialty contractors on a fast-track basis, improving the spectators experience during the most exciting tennis in the world.

Design and Construction Inspection for the Replacement of Oak Tree Road Bridge

Orangetown Oak Tree Road - Ribbon Cutting.JPG
Project Overview: 
McLaren received the 2015 Public Works Project of the Year by the American Public Works Association, New York Metropolitan Chapter. The project involved the preparation of preliminary and final designs, along with construction inspection services, for the replacement of this historic bridge, which was constructed in 1887 and encased in concrete in 1930.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided full bridge design services for replacement of the Oak Tree Road Bridge, including development of alternatives, preliminary bridge plans, advance detail plans, contract documents, and cost estimates. McLaren also updated bridge inventory forms and coordinated with the various utilities that will be affected by the replacement. Design of the new bridge was dictated in large part by the hydraulic analysis that was performed beforehand. Also key to this project was consideration of the historical nature of the bridge and the Tappan area. Located just to the southeast of the Tappan Historic District, the Oak Tree Road Bridge is in close proximity of the DeWint House, a historic structure where George Washington is said to have stayed. McLaren designed the new bridge, its guide rail and sidewalks with the area’s historic fabric in mind.

416 and 420 Kent Avenue

416 and 420 Kent Ave Rendering.jpg
Project Overview: 
416-420 Kent is comprised of 23-story towers, 6-story podiums, 1-level underground parking garages, residential units, commercial space, and amenity spaces on top of the podiums including swimming pools and outdoor basketball courts. The total constructed floor area is 800,000 square feet.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren is providing full engineering design services for the structural, geotechnical, marine, and civil portions of the project. The 421a Tax Abatement deadlines created a need for a fast-track design schedule requiring a permit set of structural drawings to be submitted within a one (1) month timeline. Partial borings were expedited to facilitate a preliminary pile design required to submit a structural permit set. Internal coordination between the Structural, Marine, Civil, and Geotechnical Divisions at McLaren allowed the project to move at the fast pace required to meet the project deadlines.

The Bristol at White Plains - North Street Community

North Street Community - Renovated Building 311.jpg
Project Overview: 
McLaren provided site/civil engineering services for its integrated community of senior residential housing, healthcare, and wellness services. This site is located on a campus-like setting on the former St. Agnes Hospital property on North Street in White Plains, NY. Construction and renovation has been completed for Building 311 which was repurposed to be used for medical office space while Building 305 (the former hospital) was adaptively reused for The Bristol 112 assisted living units (including 20 dementia units). This project approved master plan also includes four mid-rise residential buildings (containing 335 independent living apartments units) and a commons building and a parking structures in the northern portion of the site. The independent living buildings were redesign to include below grade mechanized parking structures.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided various civil/site engineering services on this project, including: site demolition and phasing, stormwater pollution prevention plan, layout and grading plan (established horizontal and vertical controls for construction, road centerline alignments and profiles, etc.) and utility design. McLaren worked closely with the landscape architect on the design on the independent living garage roof deck, including the drainage plan for this area.
