Parks and Recreation
C.A.C. is proud to have completed the second section of the High Line - a "one of a kind" public park built on a historic freight rail line, elevated above the streets of Manhattan's West Side between West 20th and West 30th Streets. The client was NYC Economic Development Corp. with oversight from NYC Department of Parks and Recreation. C.A.C. has successfully completed a "Step Streets" contract with NYC Department of Design and Construction that added granite stairs, decorative railings, pavers and planters to previously deteriorated stairways that serve as pedestrian streets in the West Bronx.
High Line Reconstruction Project
C.A.C. constructed a park on top of the elevated High Line freight rail line. New Yorkers and tourists alike now experience this unique artistic aesthetic with architectural designs and new landscaping that combined cannot be recreated anywhere in the country.
The project included 2 new elevators, rehabilitating 23rd and 30th St., 4 types of stairs, precast concrete planks, custom lights, and irrigation while incorporating the old freight rails into the new landscape. The different materials used to complete the High Line project came from countries all over the world. For example, the glass used on the project came from Mexico, the mesh from Austria, the reclaimed wood from Indonesia and the elevator panels were from Canada.
USTA National Tennis Center
C.A.C. worked as a subcontractor to Turner Construction on the United States Tennis Association National Tennis Center job. C.A.C. performed all of the site work including new drainage, sewers, grading, outbuilding foundations and tennis court paving.
W176th and W230th Step Street Rehabilitation
W176th and W230th are Step Street Projects located in the Bronx. The rehabilitation involved removal of old granite steps, excavating, grading the site and relocating existing utilities. The crews at C.A.C. worked to place a substantial amount of reinforced concrete footings on this job.The finished Step Streets are very impressive, as Bronx residents can embrace the beauty of what can be considered 2 small parks instead of typical Step streets.
