Public Health Lab

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and NYCEDC are overseeing the development of a municipal health lab on the Harlem Hospital campus. The project includes the demolition of the Women’s Pavilion and power plant and development of a 230,000 GSF facility encompassing offices, laboratories, and a walk-in clinic. Langan coordinated with the project team and NYCEDC on demolition drawings and specifications, reviewed demolition submittals, identified and addressed hazardous material concerns, and prepared remediation design documents based on our findings. We also conducted a remedial investigation to evaluate soil, groundwater, and soil vapor conditions; prepared a Remedial Action Plan, Health and Safety Plan, and remediation design documents; provided deep foundation designs; and completed a site-specific seismic study to evaluate possible soil liquefaction concerns.
