FCC is a longstanding client for over a decade. We provided land surveying, site civil engineering, and permitting services for two recent projects including the construction of a maintenance building and storage facility, and a course-wide irrigation system replacement and overhaul.
We have served as engineer and surveyor of record providing services that include the design of site grading, drainage sewer connection and utilities for several projects for this client which included a new staff house building and an indoor tennis facility. We were also lead representative in the local IWWA permit process and assisted in the Planning and Zoning Permit process.
Construction of a new maintenance facility consisting of a maintenance building, material storage structure and environmental pavilion to manage chemicals associated with golf course management. Redniss & Mead also provided engineering, surveying and zoning consulting services in conjunction with the proposed demolition and reconstruction of the Club’s existing pool complex. Services include the design of site grading, drainage and utilities including abandonment of an existing septic system and in lieu of a new sanitary sewer connection. Redniss & Mead serves as lead representative in the local land-use entitlement process for this project.
We performed surveying services including sub-marine topographic conditions and design of boat slips for this 46-slip municipal marina with launching ramp.
We were also involved with the processing of Municipal, State and Federal permit applications in conjunction with the Greenwich Parks and Recreation Department. Construction services included stakeout, final location and contract negotiations with marine contractors.
We mapped the mooring field, documented by historic data, and the position of the fixed pier and floating docks pursuant to permits from the Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Environmental Protection to retain and maintain all of the Club’s in-water facilities. After a storm destroyed the pier, we were able to redesign and obtain permits to repair and replace the pier under the Certification of Permission process. Coastal Site Plan Permits were also designed and processed for upgrades to the Club’s facilities, including building additions.
The redevelopment included adding a second story to the southern half of the building, creating a mezzanine level, completely renovating the interior of the first floor and redesigning exterior façades, curbing, walkways, parking, lighting, and landscaping. The facility includes 2 ice skating rinks, an Olympic size swimming pool, a gymnastics training facility, batting cages, squash courts, a restaurant and snack bar, mezzanine viewing areas, basketball courts, tennis courts, a multi-purpose turf field, running track, and ancillary retail, office, and daycare facilities.
The Greenwich Skating Club, Inc. demolished and reconstructed an existing facility on their 2.3 acre property in Greenwich, CT. For several decades, the Club has operated as a privately owned facility that offers organized competition, practice and instruction in hockey and figure skating as well as general skating time. The project entailed the construction of an approximately 9,000± square foot, two story clubhouse building that has a viewing room, locker rooms, gathering space, a kitchen and cafeteria, lavatories and miscellaneous rooms for coaches, skate sharpening, etc. Construction also included a separate building to house a zamboni and other mechanical equipment. We performed related site work such as grading, drainage improvements, utility services and reconfiguration of an existing service drive. The existing, full size outdoor hockey rink remained. We also introduced drainage improvements, Low Impact Development (LID) measures and new, state of the art mechanical/refrigeration equipment. The site is located near East Brothers Brook and is within a Special Flood Hazard Area making it necessary to design the project to comply with FEMA and local Flood Hazard Overlay Zone requirements as well as providing compensatory storage of flood waters.
We provided engineering services associated with site design, permitting and construction of the Phase 1 expansion of the Greenwich YMCA including a new State of the Art Olympics Aquatics Center with 50 meter by 25 meter. Engineering services included design of site grading, drainage, utilities, erosion controls, pavement, etc. The design required sensitivity to construction logistics in order to maintain business operations during construction and to address site constraints and neighbor concerns.
