Goldwater Hospital Demolition

The project consisted of the demolition of Goldwater Hospital, which is located near the southern end of Roosevelt Island, south of the Queensboro Bridge and north of Four Freedoms Park. The 12.5-acre site includes seven main buildings with interconnected corridors (215,000 SF), asphalt parking lots, and open space areas. Langan provided demolition engineering and regulatory permitting services, demolition documents consisting of drawings and specifications, and assisted the owner and contractor in preparation of the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan for the demolition work. One significant project challenge included coordinating only one single point of access to Roosevelt Island, which created difficulty for the removal of demolition debris and other materials from the site.
