Project TypeCultural & Civic
Under the NYCDDC’s Design and Construction Excellence program, BKSK is currently working with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to provide a feasibility study exploring options for constructing new Fleet and Bureau of Water and Sewer Operations (BWSO) facilities to improve safety and operations.
BKSK is developing and evaluating conceptual design options for DEP’s Fleet and BWSO units. The Fleet facility will include a multi-bay garage for storing, cleaning and servicing vehicles, training track for large trucks, administrative offices, conference room, file/copy room, pantry, storage, restroom, locker and shower facilities, and parking for 200 cars. The BWSO facility will include a multi-bay garage, parts and material storage, machine shop, administrative offices, restroom, locker and shower facilities.
The study includes an evaluation of site conditions and constraints, zoning requirements, programmatic requirements, sustainability requirements, and regulatory requirements governing hazardous materials removal. Comprehensive site and landscape strategies, integrating on-site operations, vehicular and pedestrian circulation, stormwater management and flood mitigation measures, as well as provisions for temporary on-site facilities and phasing for uninterrupted operations are also included in the scope.
