[FEDERAL] Heavy Civil Disaster Remediation
Gateway National Park, New York
Superstorm Sandy debris and hazard remediation for the National Park Service
The National Park Service awarded a contract to remove debris and remediate hazards caused by Superstorm Sandy at Fort Tilden Beach and Floyd Bennett Field at the Gateway National Recreation Area in Jamaica Bay, NY. The project was of an emergency nature because of threatened and endangered species-related environmental restrictions, and was completed within a short 10-day time frame.
The prime contractor tasked with the remediation selected RENOVA as a key subcontractor to provide heavy equipment operators and laborers. RENOVA’s crew safely and efficiently removed large chunks of debris broken off from nearby Shore Road and loaded more than 175 tractor trailers of concrete for disposal with a 70-ton CAT excavator, a “Euclid” off-road CAT dump truck, and a 20-ton articulating wheel loader.
The project was delivered to the prime contractor and National Park Service’s satisfaction and the beach was open for the public’s safe enjoyment in time for summer.
