Good Samaritan Hospital Emergency Department Expansion

The project included an expansion to the existing single-story, 11,500 sq. ft. Emergency Department at Good Samaritan Hospital. The addition included additional space for increased exam room capacity from 20 to 32 with the same number of Trauma rooms, larger exam rooms (increased to today’s standard), a new covered drop-off and entry vestibule, new waiting area, and a new covered drive-through ambulance receiving area to promote efficient patient delivery to the Emergency Department.

Tectonic provided geophysical location of private underground utilities, site planning and design, stormwater management, utility design, landscaping design, site lighting, local Village/Planning Board approvals, bid and construction support, and SPDES-compliance inspections during construction. Expedited survey and local approvals for a generator and patient canopy for the Medical Office Building were added during construction.

Located (electromagnetic and ground-penetrating radar methods), relocated, accommodated, and upgraded water, fire suppression, gas, steam, oxygen, electric, sanitary, and stormwater situated between the central power plant and Emergency Department.

Newburgh Enlarged Central School District

The City of Newburgh School District is an expanded district that encompasses two adjacent towns. As a result of the aged facility inventory and magnet school educational approach, the consolidation of some schools and the expansion of others to accommodate the student population have required significant infrastructure upgrades. Tectonic provided a variety of services for improvements at 10 different schools in the City of Newburgh, Newburgh, and Town of New Windsor.

Services performed in connection with two separate bond referenda included: value engineering, boundary/topographic surveys, geotechnical/pavement investigations, site plans for SED approval (involving idrainage, grading, roadways, circulation, safety, parking lots, sidewalks, retaining walls, potable water, irrigation, and sanitary sewer), athletic facilities (two NFHS polyurethane-bound rubber running tracks, softball, multi-purpose fields, tennis courts), and SPDES stormwater compliance.

At three schools, the condition/safety of the roadways and parking lots was dramatically improved through the reconfiguration and reconstruction of discrete bus loading areas, separated parent drop-off locations, and new access roadways.

NY Wheel ACM Exposure Assessment

The New York Wheel is a 630-foot Ferris Wheel under construction which is located on the waterfront of St. George, Staten Island. The NY Wheel is expected to become one of New York City’s and the world’s greatest landmark attractions with a projected 3.5 million visitors a year. The wheel will be the largest in the world consisting of 36 passenger capsules, each carrying up to 40 passengers, and a maximum capacity of 1,440 people per ride that will provide extraordinary views of the Manhattan Skyline.

Tectonic’s environmental team provided asbestos exposure assessment services during the pile driving operations at the early construction phase conducted at the site of this future exciting world attraction.

The construction is expected to create approximately 600 permanent jobs as well as 350 union construction jobs.
