Beacon Merchant Construction Selected By NYC Dept. of Sanitation (DSNY)
for Site Improvement / Stormwater Management Project

Beacon Consulting Group’s sister company, Beacon Merchant Construction, Inc., is a construction company approved to perform GC work for all NYC agencies, with bonding capacity sufficient to take on major projects. Beacon Merchant is currently the General Contractor for a site improvement project now underway for the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY). The project is taking place at DSNY’s Brooklyn-15 (BK-15) Garage, a truck-storage, parking, and maintenance facility located on a waterfront location in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

The BK-15 project includes:

  • Installation of a stormwater handling system

  • Site excavation and installation of infiltration systems, detention tanks, and oil water separators

  • Other/related site improvements include: Installation of new snow plow racks, truck bumpers, asphalt pavement replacement, and installation of new chain link fencing

Work on the project started in June and is scheduled to finish later this summer. Key personnel working on the project for Beacon include Mike Paquet (Construction Site Superintendent) and Kieran O'Connor (Project Manager).

An interesting part of the BK-15 project is the installation of a large, pre-cast concrete water detention system. As shown in the photos, the multi-section Terre Box water detention tank consists of 9 large pre-cast concrete sections, each weighing 80,000 lbs.

The completed Terre Box is more than 60 feet long, by 25 feet wide, and 8 feet deep (capacity between 8000 and 9000 gallons). The Terre Box modules were assembled on site with the aid of a 120-ton-capacity mobile crane having a telescoping hydraulic boom, used to lift and position each section.

The project follows on previous work phases completed by Beacon at BK-15 which is profiled in a previous version of Beacon’s E-news (Click Here). Previous work included: Removal and replacement of modular structures, completion of site excavation and paving work, and hookups for electrical, plumbing, and municipal sewerage.

Along with DSNY, Beacon Merchant is also approved to perform General Contracting work for all NYC agencies, including but not limited to NYCHA, NYCSCA, NYCDDC, NYC Parks, and NYCEDC.
