About this Project
LKB has been retained by Nassau County Department of Public Works to provide design and construction inspection services for various improvements at Christopher Morley Park, located in Roslyn, NY. LKB prepared a Technical Design Report (TDR), assessing existing conditions of amenities, a tree inventory, and providing improvement recommendations. As part of the TDR, LKB prepared conceptual plans for specific areas throughout the park.
Existing amenities scheduled for assessment and recommended improvements include a clock tower, concession stand located inside the main administration building, children spray park area, pathways through the site, handicap accessible routes, playground equipment, court games, lighting and landscaping. Complete redesign of specific areas will also be considered where feasible. Associated construction costs will also be provided for improvements. The project includes the construction of a rain garden and the installation of permeable pavement that will assist in improving water quality. These “green” infrastructure items were incorporated into the project design to slow down storm water runoff, help prevent flooding, allow for immediate on-site infiltration of runoff and reduce heat island effect.
Upon acceptance of the contract documents, LKB will develop the conceptual plans into set of contract documents and provide services during the bidding phase, which will include responding to inquiries from prospective bidders; review of contractors’ qualifications and references; preparation of a bid summary; and recommendation of the award to the lowest responsible and qualified bidder. LKB’s construction support services during the construction phase will include review and approval of detailed shop drawings, catalog cuts, and miscellaneous submittals for compliance with contract documents; review and responses to RFI’s (Request for Information) and Change Order Requests; and attendance of progress and project meetings, as necessary.
