Founded in 1972, Covenant House is the largest privately funded agency in the Americas focused on providing assistance to homeless youth. The new state-of-the-art, 80,720-SF, 12-story building in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan features 53,000 SF of residential space. This is the first supportive housing by Covenant House in 48 years and is dedicated to raising awareness concerning the city’s homelessness problem. Our team of geotechnical, environmental, and site/civil engineers provided the developers with a single source solution to all of their ground-down engineering needs. This collaborative approach included the permitting required to obtain New York City Transit Authority approval for all geotechnical and environmental investigation, the placement of new electrical vaults, and the resulting support of excavation design that was completed in close proximity to the new 7 line subway tunnel.
