New York Aquarium – Shark Tank and Animal Care Facility

As an initial revitalizing component for the seaside neighborhood of Coney Island, this new 58,000-SF building and ‘shimmer wall’, was designed by renowned artist/sculptor Ned Kahn. Langan provided geotechnical engineering services including a comprehensive subsurface investigation that included a review of existing data and analysis, soil sampling, and foundation recommendations. Our construction phase services included accredited special inspections, construction administration and monitoring of water-proofing installation. Our environmental engineers provided services for characterization and delineation of soil hauled as part of development, including 24 soil borings. Langan also provided comprehensive State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) services to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the project.
