BANC3 Engineering, as the Construction Manager as Advisor (CMa) for the General Services Administration, recently completed the demolition and renovations to the 6th Floor (approximately 30,000 SF) of the Ted Weiss Federal Building at 290 Broadway in New York City. The new, high technology workspace was designed for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The space is expected to receive at least LEED Silver once certified. The majority of the build-out was private offices. Special spaces in the design included interview and negotiation rooms, Bloomberg rooms, Joint-Use Conference Rooms on the 30th floor, a mothers' room, gender neutral bathroom, lobby space, pantries, copy and print centers, and large and small team conference rooms. In addition to our construction management services, we also managed the special inspections, standard commissioning, and enhanced commissioning.

BANC3 Engineering is currently completing a second project for our international water service provider client that includes surveying for base map preparation, as well as geotechnical exploration, for future water main replacement projects in Ocean County, New Jersey. Our deliverables to our client included the creation of a topographic survey for the full right-of-way along the over 5 miles of roadway requiring survey during this phase of the project. Our team also developed utility mapping and profiles including field data and information obtained from local utility companies. Our client has also worked with our partner firm ThirdEye previously, utilizing the ThirdEye Augmented Reality Glasses for maintenance work in France. The ThirdEye Augmented Reality Glasses allow field maintenance personnel to communicate progress and challenges to office staff both visually and verbally, while simultaneously sharing documents, which improves efficiencies.

BANC3 Engineering, as the Construction Manager as Advisor (CMa) for the General Services Administration, recently completed the repair and alteration of the exterior fa├žade systems and site work at the Charles L. Brieant Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in White Plains, New York. The project was completed utilizing the design - build delivery approach. Upon project initiation, it was determined that the scope of repair work needed to increase by approximately 70% to provide the required enhancements to the building's waterproofing, deteriorated granite panels, and concrete plaza and sidewalk to provide additional years of service to the federal building and courthouse. Though careful planning, the additional scope of repairs were accomplished within the initial schedule.
