Hurricane Sandy Beach Restoration DDC Contract #1 – Prefabricated Modular Buildings 

- $105m worth of construction completed in 87 days
24/7, 3 shift work schedule 
- The buildings included comfort stations,lifeguard stations and offices
The 58 ton structures were manufactured in Pennsylvania,
  trucked and barged to the sites 

 

 

 

Along with boardwalk and beach access renovation and repair, Triton Structural built and installed 35 prefabricated modular buildings on beaches in New York City as part of a project to repair damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. The comfort stations, lifeguard stations and offices sit on an elevated concrete pier above the sand with access provided by ramps.

The units were transported to Newark on semi trailers as “Super Loads” due to their size (approximately 58’) and weight (115,000 lbs). They were then barged to the beach and hoisted into place with the largest crane available in NYC. Despite tremendous logistical challenges, all of the setting work was done at night.

Oak Grove Bridge - Los Angeles, CA



- Design-Build
- Seismic Retrofit of 2 freeway bridges
 

 

 

This design-build project consists of per­forming Seismic Retrofitting and repairs to two (2) concrete arterial highway bridges built in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. The two bridges span two canyons. The West bridge spans the Flint Canyon which has a small stream of water flowing into the Devils Gate Dam. The East bridge spans the Arroyo Seco Canyon, which is at the outlet and overflow of the Devils Gate Dam. The implementation of proper storm water pollution control measures was critical to this project. One of the project require­ments was to implement a series positive storm water pollution control program that would insure no polluted water would come from the construction site and enter the two canyons below the bridges and road sur­faces. Another of the critical aspects of this project is to provide a safe and workable traffic control plan the will allow the project to be built and keep the motoring public informed and safe.
