LKB is the project manager for the Post-Closure Management Consultant Services Contract for the 132-acre Brookfield Avenue Landfill (BAL), located in Staten Island, NY for the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR). 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. Prior to providing these services to the NYCDPR, LKB provided similar services to the NYCDEP at this site for three years.
In addition, LKB, in a joint venture with URS, performed the construction management for the capping of the landfill for the NYCDEP. The work included importing over 60,000 cubic yards of clean-fill, installation of LLDPE Geomembranes, gas-collection and flare systems, storm drainage systems, a slurry wall, storm drainage basins, fencing, topsoil, plantings, and access roads. 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 performed monthly updates of the project schedule utilizing the Primevera program to measure progress, and contract payouts.
