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.

Mercy College Dormitory

Mercy College Rendering.jpg
Project Overview: 
McLaren provided engineering, approval support and surveying services for the construction the new Mercy College Dormitory. The proposed project is the construction of a 350-bed dormitory building, associated walkways, utilities, offsite road and traffic signal improvements, landscaping and additional parking at the College.
McLaren's Role: 
The project integrated a new 350-bed dormitory into the existing campus through the development of revised campus circulation and development of a main pedestrian circulation spine. The project required Site Plan and Special Use Permit approvals from the Village of Dobbs Ferry and review and approval of access by the Village of Irvington. The SEQR process resulted in preparation of a Draft and Final EIS and addressed critical issue of the adjacent historic Old Croton Aqueduct and the adjacent residential community. McLaren performed and provided Topographic, Utility and Boundary Survey, Geotechnical Field Investigation and Report, Site Plan/Village/SEQR Approvals, Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), Supported Environmental Impact Statement updates in accordance with SEQR, Construction Documents and Construction Phase Services.
