LIRR Jamaica Station Headquarters Structural Rehabilitation

Project Overview: 
McLaren provided structural inspection, evaluation, and design services for the rehabilitation of exterior elements of the historic LIRR. Completed in 1913 with great fanfare, the Jamaica Station building’s restoration not only protects this valuable asset against further deterioration, but also highlights its historical and cultural significance. Since the building is eligible to be listed on the National Register, rehabilitation work was performed with the approval of the New York SHPO.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren performed a detailed condition inspection of the Jamaica Station Building’s exterior, including all concrete, terra cotta, sheet metal, cast iron, brick, granite, and wood façade elements. In order to allow the building to maintain 100% functionality, a comprehensive staging plan was developed for the inspections. Accessing the facades was a key challenge; a specialized rigging contractor was utilized for these. Inspection findings were tabulated into a rehabilitation report. Following the inspection, McLaren began rehabilitation designs for the deteriorated structural elements. New lighting and coatings was also provided. Bid Phase Support was provided after construction documents were delivered.
