Gateway Estates is one of the largest city-sponsored economic developments in Brooklyn, NY. It is a part of the Fresh Creek Urban Renewal project. The project turned a long-vacant piece of publicly owned land into a new community.
The intent of Phase 1 was to improve the quality of life within the project area by building new roadways, sidewalks and curbs, and replacing the existing combined sewers and water mains, reconstructing roadway, installing new traffic signals, signage, pedestrian ramps, street lighting, bus stop shelters and landscaping work. As the prime consultant, we were retained to perform the Resident Engineering Inspection Services for the infrastructure.
Key Elements of the project included: Contract Administration and Project Management, Resident Engineering Inspection of the construction of water mains, sanitary sewers, combined sewers, street lighting, traffic signals, and utilities relocation. Construction of new roadways, curbs, sidewalks and pedestrian ramps, pile driving, tree mitigation, maintenance and protection of traffic, scheduling adherence to project milestones and enforcement all applicable permits. This project was completed on time and within budget.
