New York’s subway lines move between 472 stations across all five boroughs. Governor Cuomo called for the renovation of dozens of subway stations in his 2015-2019 Capital Program. Under this initiative, the stations and lines are getting new looks, which are nearly hundreds of years old. Twin Peaks Inc is providing special inspections in the Concrete Field, Rebar, Concrete Precast, Fire Resistant Penetrations and Joints, Masonry, Pull Tests, NDT Magnetic Particle Testing, NDT Ultrasonic Testing, Sol Compaction, Steel Welding, Steel Bolting.
The Metropolitan Transit Authority Enhanced Station Initiative (ESI) Program was launched in February 2016 in response to the governor’s mandate. Led by the New York City Transit Authority (NYCT), the ESI Program is a major investment in MTA infrastructure. The program covers the modernization of up to 33 stations, some of which have been in operation for more than a century. When complete, the stations will be equipped to meet the challenges of climate change and increasing ridership, and will feature:
- LED lighting providing brighter, safer space
- Renewed finishes
- Improved wayfinding
- Enhanced communications (including real time service information via platform countdown clocks, digital displays providing system, station and location specific information, etc.)
- Additional passenger amenities (including new furniture, USB charging ports, and artwork)
- Necessary structural repairs and waterproofing.
As the ESI’s Program Facilitator, we are working hand-in-hand with the client from a single dedicated project office to develop the bridging and bid documents, oversee the architectural and engineering design, scheduling, cost, construction packaging and procurement of all program work.
