SIMCO is providing construction management services in support of the $79 million reconstruction of the SIRT yard below the elevated bus deck at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal.
This is the major intermodal terminal on Staten Island and provides transfers for commuter rail, ferry, taxi, and bicycle and is undergoing extensive rehabilitation to repair damage from Superstorm Sandy.
The rail yard is being reconstructed with new tracks, traction power, signals and communications facilities, and perimeter flood “hardening“ measures. Tower “B” is also being rehabilitated. Asbestos mitigation is also included.
This is a high-visibility, active area with significant vehicle, pedestrian, and commuter activity. All work is being performed while maintaining customer service at all times for the SIRT lines terminating at the Terminal. Work is being conducted in shifts to facilitate completion and minimize impacts on existing services and railroad operations.
SIMCO’s full time on-site staff includes Senior Civil/Structural Inspector, Senior Electrical Inspector, Civil Inspector, and Site Safety Representative.
