Helping to Rebuild Lower Manhattan

Battery Park City Authority

Project Overview

MVN bid for and was awarded the honor of assisting the Battery Park City Authority in the reconstruction of the World Trade Center area.

As part of timber sheeting remediation efforts, we were called upon to install 1,900 linear feet of reinforced concrete wall under the World Financial Center.

A custom-designed project plan included underwater excavation of more than 2,000 tons of riprap stone, and the design, construction, and implementation of a conveyance system able to pump concrete underwater for more than 700 feet.

The Battery Park City Authority also asked MVN to install 540 linear feet of reinforced concrete wall beneath the Wagner Park relieving platform at the southern end of Battery Park City. The project entailed installing the wall as well as the underwater hand excavation of more than 540 tons of riprap stone within one of New York’s most treasured parks.

In addition, MVN designed and implemented the first combined renewable energy system to be installed in NYC utilizing wind and solar power.

All work plans were designed to maximize productivity while minimizing disruption in one of the city’s busiest locations.
