PACO provided cost estimating services for the complete rehabilitation and renovation of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel (BBT) Service Building, which was originally designed and built in the 1930s.
The building had fallen into severe disrepair and MTA-B&T was in the process of renovating the structure when it was badly damaged by Superstorm Sandy. Damage from the storm condemned the structure and resulted in the need for a complete reconstruction of most of the building’s critical infrastructure.
Construction involved improvements to the structure to protect it from flooding, renovation and modernization of the available office space, replacement of all equipment, and exterior improvements and landscaping to improve the building’s aesthetic quality.
PACO provided cost estimating services and a constructability review for the entire life cycle of the project. PACO’s in-house professional engineer and registered architect prepared a comprehensive constructability report prepared to improve the design, modify the procurement strategy, and provide a quality control review of the A/E design.
