New Data Center at Building 157

B. Thayer Associates provided maintenance and protection of traffic as well as civil engineering services during the re-design of Building 157. The team designed restorations of concrete curb, concrete-island/sidewalk and pavement for areas related to the installation of the communication duct-bank throughout the airport; conducted field investigations for the purpose of identifying the areas that will be excavated and restored; and prepared contract drawings in accordance with the civil design standards of the Authority.

B. Thayer Associates also conducted field investigations for the purpose of identifying existing signs, pavement markings, parking lot egress/ingress, and possible site constraints during construction. The team evaluated the construction feasibility as it applies to traffic safety, and coordinate with the lead disciplines to develop the construction sequence and prepared Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) drawings based on the construction sequences developed with the lead disciplines (general notes, sign data sheets, standard details).

Other work items included the preparation of final pavement marking, general notes and standard detail drawings; the development of a Division One Maintenance of Traffic Work Area Protection Specification for the contract booklet; and attendance at design working meetings for the traffic component.

B. Thayer Associates will provide design services during construction (DSDC) (construction administration) for the traffic and civil components.
