Solar Field – Cypress Creek Renewables

OVERVIEW
Langan is currently providing site/civil engineering for over 30 of CCR’s 2-megawatt solar sites in New York State and the Dunroamin site in Massachusetts. These projects are being developed under NYSERDA’s community distributed generation or “community solar” program. Local solar farms, like the ones in New York State, benefit the environment, community and nearby residences. Langan prepared full design drawings and stormwater management reports to support the site plan application to the respective Zoning and Planning Boards for each project. These drawings included site layout, grading and drainage, soil erosion and sediment control, and landscaping plans. Langan provided high-quality deliverables on difficult sites under fast-paced schedules, due to the nature of solar funding programs. Considering the complexity of the sites, Langan adapted to the changes in scope presented to meet CCR’s needs and maintains the desired schedules for the projects.

SUNY Albany – School of Business

OVERVIEW
SUNY Albany's new School of Business will serve as the hub of learning and innovation for the university’s business students. At entry level, the two-story concourse creates a pedestrian street, linking various business programs within the building, and the training lab adjacent to the main entry. A second-level common-room will encourage informal gatherings, inter-program collaboration, and extended learning outside the classroom. The school, which connects to an existing structure, required partial demolition. Langan completed the asbestos, lead-based paint and PCB inspection and reported findings to the client. Our services included a review of original design documents for the building, interviews with personnel familiar with the building, and performance of an asbestos investigation to confirm the presence (or absence) of hazardous containing materials.

Westchester Financial Center

OVERVIEW
The Westchester Financial Center consists of approximately 309,000 SF of existing Class A office space in downtown White Plains. Langan worked closely with the owner and architect to re-imagine this site in a much more pedestrian-friendly way. The main concept was to pull nature back into the concrete-heavy character of White Plains by incorporating ecological design. With this in mind, the streetscapes and 3-tier interior rooftop courtyards were designed using our concept of the Southern Taconic Ecological Precinct, or S.T.E.P. This unique design infuses the multi-level pedestrian space with an educational landscape that includes native species in varying layers of the local, southern New York landscape while creating an interactive outdoor office and café to enhance the office experience.
