LKB is the project manager for the Post-Closure Management Consultant Services Contract for the 150-acre Brookfield Avenue Landfill (BAL), located in Brooklyn, NY for the NYCDEP. Services include: managing the operation, maintenance and monitoring contract activities, coordination with regulatory agencies, preparation of new contracts, database management, community participation and public outreach, and landfill security.
In addition, LKB, in a joint venture with URS, performed the construction management for the capping of the landfill. The work included importing over 60,000 cubic yards of clean-fill, installation of HDPE Geomembranes, gas-collection and flare systems, storm drainage systems, a slurry wall, storm drainage basins, fencing, topsoil, plantings, and access roads. The plantings, ball fields and nature trails will make this site the largest public park in Staten Island. LKB’s specific responsibilities for this project entailed preparation of a project QA/QC record keeping implementation plan to assure all testing and performance requirements are met, geosynthetic inspection of geomembrane and geocomposite drainage blankets, civil engineering inspection of drainage chutes, concrete slabs, maintenance of erosion control netting, drainage piping, and perimeter roads. Additionally, LKB performs monthly updates of the project schedule utilizing the Primevera program to measure progress, and contract payouts.
The park successfully opened in early December of 2017, offering numerous natural habitats, meadows, wetlands, woodlands, marshes, streams and ponds, with walking trails throughout the park. The park’s opening brings New York City’s total parkland to over 30,000 acres.
