Arup provided structural engineering and materials consulting services on this project; demonstrating the opportunity to scale up the use of concrete 3D printing in the construction industry, even with complex shapes and challenging design briefs.
Our primary role was to provide independent technical due diligence advice to GIP throughout the transaction to support their asset evaluation process. Arup’s experienced transaction advice team focused on key deal value drivers including energy yield modelling, capex and opex assumptions and consideration of multijurisdictional development pipeline of projects.
Arup led the revitalisation of this abandoned industrial area in Long Island City into an 11-acre continuous waterfront park. Arup’s infrastructure designs included 7,500 feet of sanitary and storm sewers, 3,700 feet of water main, and 4,000 feet of new and reconstructed streets and mark the completion of Phase II.
Arup was selected by the architecture firm Payette to provide mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering, as well as energy modelling, façade consulting, sustainability, and lighting design services for the project. Using advanced computer modelling to integrate the design of the building systems and façade, the design team significantly reduced operational costs and improved energy efficiency.
