The Columbia University Manhattanville Campus Project is located between West 129th Street and West 131st Street between Broadway and 12th Avenue in the East Harlem Section of New York City. The Jerome L. Greene Service Center is the first building of the new Columbia’s Manhattanville Campus expansion. This 10-story structure includes 175,988 square feet of building envelop, largely consisting of transparent floor to ceiling glass walls. This project will follow Columbia University Green Construction Principles.
The project will be executed using top-down construction, which involves the erection of the structural steel and elevated concrete floors first, while the subfloors and basements are excavated concurrently with the superstructure. NY Concrete primary activities for this phase of construction activities are the coordination, staging and pouring of an estimated 80,000 square foot concrete slab for the first level of the building. The elements of the NY Concrete scope of work are: erecting and fabrication of steel reinforcing bars, mobilizing concrete pump trucks, redi-mix concrete truck delivery, pouring of the concrete slab, and finishing the concrete slab and curing the concrete. E2PM was hired to develop and implement the required dust and noise monitoring specifically for the scope of work that was implemented by NY Concrete.
