New York Power Authority (NYPA)
The project included demolition of existing structures in and out of the Buffalo River and on the site that was once a commercial site along Katherine Street and the Buffalo River. The new site included site work, new drainage, associated utility work and concrete substructures as well as work to construct a concrete launch ramp/tug boat tie offs and approximately 6 acre stone storage area for the Ice boom that is placed into the Niagara River every fall and removed in the spring to prevent ice flows that cause damage to power generation down river. This site had excavation and handling of areas of urban fill and contaminated non-hazardous material. There was a large security wall constructed with caisson type foundations and precast posts & panels.
