NYC Parks Superstorm Sandy Beach Restoration

McLaren Engineering Group was retained by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation (NYC Parks) to provide project management, civil engineering, structural engineering and construction phase support during the recovery efforts following Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. As the prime design consultant, McLaren prepared construction documents for over $140 million of construction for beach restoration of damaged facilities.

The McLaren Difference: Applied Ingenuity

Beginning in the immediate aftermath of the storm, McLaren worked with the NYC Parks to access the damage of the beachfront facilities – including boardwalks, comfort stations, and concession and lifeguard facilities. The goal of the repairs was to allow the NYC beaches to open Memorial Day 2013, just seven months after the storm. The boardwalk reconstruction included access ramps and locations for beach-goers to enjoy concessions and ocean views. Important to the design solution was the design and construction of 34 modular comfort and lifeguard stations to allow the beaches to safety open.

Superstorm Sandy Beach Restoration Award

This project was given Special Recognition by the New York City Public Design Commission in 2013 – for the restoration modules, and named as New York Regions Best Projects, Best Government / Public Building Project by Engineering News-Record in 2014 – for the beach access restoration.
