Baypark Sewage Treatment Plant Conveyance Project
Foit-Albert Associates, as a subconsultant, was contracted under 2 separate contracts (design and construction) to assist in the rebuilding of the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) Conveyance project to better serve the more than half a million Nassau County residents who depend on it. Foit-Albert provided architectural services as well as structural engineering and landscape/civil engineeing services.
Project Details: In 2019, The Bay Park STP was among the facilities damaged by flooding, high winds, and power outages from Hurricane Sandy. Many of the facilities on the complex need to be rebuilt or replaced to ensure protection from future storms.
Initially, Foit-Albert assisted and supported the Prime Consultant and owner in the technical review process to procure the Design-Build team for the $408 million project to connect the Bay Park plant to the Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant in Wantagh via an aqueduct beneath Sunrise Highway.
Specific tasks centered around Request for Information, technical review, and preliminary and final evaluation of proposers.
Concurrently, Foit-Albert’s architects began design of the new pump station at Bay Park and preparation of bridging documents for the team to use in the construction for the building.
Of note, the current campus has a particular established strong design aesthetic and the new pump station needed to fit in with it.
Architects were able to provide a design for the building, that needed to be built on stilts to prevent damage from potential water events, matching the futuristic space age wall and ornate fences uncommon for traditional sewage treatment plants.
Additionally, Foit-Albert handled the structural considerations for the concrete weirs – vertical walls – which filters the water in for the plant.
The Nassau County Department of Public Works hired the Program Management joint venture Hazen & Sawyer and Arcadis team and, under this joint venture, Foit-Albert was hired to perform and provide a Boundary, Topographic, Utility and Bathymetric Survey encompassing the Long Beach Waste Water Treatment Plant and the proposed force main route.
Currently, Foit-Albert’s Civil Engineers are reviewing the design work from the General Contractor to make sure the site and landscape are conforming to documents.
