The lowest garage level is at the same elevation as the track leve l for the PATH tunnel and at the roof of the New York City Subway level. This co mplicated foundation comprises of an exterior foundation wall, which is two feet from the subway tunnel wall. Foundation is on 40 tsf rock with the walls socke ted into the rock. To accommodate the subway constraints, the lowest garage lev el is set back with the exterior foundation walls supported by floor high cantil evers. The tower floors are cast-in-place concrete flat slabs with no perimeter beams. Primary lateral resistance is attained by a three dimensional system of shear walls and cores. 8100 River Road "The Watermark" North Bergen, NJ - Developed on a 4.7 acre water front parcel of land on the waterfront of the Hudson in North Bergen, NJ, this 3 00,000 sq. ft. residential development consists of 14 stories of luxury condomin iums (totaling 206 units). The structural framing system is a light-weight concr ete flat plate design with the steel reinforcement tonnage averaging 12 psf for the entire frame. Lateral load resistance is attained by a combination of shear walls and moment frames. The World Trade Center, Permanent PATH Station, New York, NY - This project cons ists of the PATH station, the Terminal Building (a steel and glass atrium with a n opening roof), an east-west corridor connecting the Winter-garden at Battery P ark to the new Fulton Street MTA Terminal, and north-south corridors providing a ccess to Vesey and Liberty Streets. This $1.4 Billion project is being construc ted concurrently with Freedom Tower, the World Trade Center Memorial and numerou s other expansion and renovation projects within the World Trade Center Site. Newark International Airport, Terminal C FIS Expansion Project, Newark, NJ - The expansion of this terminal included a 6000 sq. ft. addition to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) Hall Area and a 2000 sq. ft. addition to the In ternational Baggage Claim Area at Terminal C.

lopment consists of 12 stories of luxury condominiums. The structural framing sy stem is a super-efficient light-weight concrete flat plate design with the steel reinforcement tonnage averaging 7 psf for the entire frame. Lateral load resis tance is attained by a combination of shear walls and moment frames. Varying flo or heights create unequal stair runs causing the stair core, an integral part of the lateral resistance system, to constantly change its performance characteris tics. JFK International Airport, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 Delta Rehabilitation Projec t, Jamaica, NY - This project consisted of the inspection and investigation of e xisting building No. 53 (formerly Pan American Airlines) and No. 54 (formerly No rthwest Airlines).

Transportation Security Agency Deployment - Condition Survey of Airports, Variou s Airports. Inspections were made on the physical condition of the buildings of several major airports including their structural elements, exterior walls and interior partitions and ceilings. The survey was carried out to assess the condi tions of existing structures and determine the necessary structural modification s necessary to accommodate the installation of new security equipment while main taining the integrity of the structures. Middlebury College Library, Middlebury, VT. The new Middlebury College Library is a state-of-the-art research and learning facility. The new 3-story facility provides expansion space for the college's growing collection of printed materia ls, and accommodates the increasing use of technology in teaching and research.
