Coney Island Hospital Modernization
Langan provided comprehensive geotechnical and site/civil engineering services for the 7-story, 154,000-SF building addition as part of the hospital modernization program. Demolition of existing structures, relocation of utility systems and site preparation was required such that an area large enough to accommodate the addition would be provided. Additional site improvements included expanded parking facilities, design of therapeutic gardens/plazas, and streetscape enhancement. Our subsurface investigations determined that the building would need to be pile supported, and subsequent geotechnical engineering design recommendations identified the installation of an auger-cast pile foundation to be the most cost-effective.
